Can you tame a 10m old parent reared Caique?

Hello,

I'm currently interested in getting a caique of my own. I have the experience of taming my sisters 6 month old caique who was parent reared but was handled every day as a baby in the nest. Taming him was quite easy for me and I'm a pretty patient person.
I have found an advert for a 10 month old caique who has been parent reared, when I messaged the seller they told me that they are strictly aviary birds and not suitable as pets.

I'm just wondering if I should give it a miss, or give it a go? Is it too risky trying to tame a parrot like this?

I have no experience with caiques but have heard they can be difficult to tame. Truth is there are a lot of misconceptions and exceptions to most every rule. Hopefully members with experience can better guide you!

I think this will be a very steep hill for you.
