    Male caique regurgitation on my finger

    I got a 5 year old male Caique a little less than a week ago, and things have slowly been going well as he accustoms to me and his environment. However, one behaviour he has had from day one has been him swinging his head with his mouth open after eating, giving me a specific whistle, and then...

    Stopping my Caique from flying across the roam

    four days ago I got my new five year old Caique: Appa. I took him from his previous owner who found out she had two males, and the past few days we've been getting used to each other. He seems increasingly comfortable around me and the environment, and he's at the point where he's starting to...

    caique eggs do not hatch

    I am the proud owner of a pair of black-headed caiques. 4 years ago, at the age of 9, the couple began laying eggs. But, unfortunately, laying fertilized eggs once a year, they freeze 2 days before hatching. Tell me, what could it be.?

    Hello everyone! Trying to advance in trick training with my 1 year old WBC, but can't seem to find the right treat for the motivation! He's come pretty far, even though he gets distracted and forgets about his reward in the middle of eating it :LOL: Have seen some impressive tricks from...

    Regurgitating caique

    Hello everyone, I recently adopted a pair of bonded caiques (a little over a week ago). They have not been encouraged to do any mating behaviors in the past and I don’t want babies, so I have been working to ensure that I don’t do anything that could impact that (only head scratches, 12 hours of...

    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.

    Caique obsessed with hands, uses them as chewing toy

    Hello all Caique owners, I'm in need of advice on my female White bellied Caique Mojo. As the title implies, she is obsessed with hands, and when in play mode she will chew on them in an unpleasant way. It is not biting or agression, she literally starts chewing but with great force. In short...

    So I have been doing some serious research about what bird I want to get. After quite a while, I finally decided that I'm getting a caique! I found a local aviary that sells them for 250 each (a bargain I know). I have done lots of research and know quite a bit about them, but I wanted to make...
