Caiques are unique in that even when kept in pairs (as pets), they will still remain tame to their people. In fact two caiques will do a great job keeping each other and you entertained with their antics! Young caiques have yellow mixed in with their white chest feathers. As they mature, the chest feathers become snow white.
Availability: We are no longer breeding birds. Thank you for your interest.
One of our favorites!
Caiques are small (about 8 inches from head to tail) stocky birds from South America. Their beautiful colors and outgoing personalities make them very popular as pets. They love to be in the center of everything and thrive in an active household. They require lots of toys to play with to prevent boredom as well as daily hands-on attention from their owners. They are very social and most will readily accept attention from multiple people.
Our caique babies are abundantly weaned to a pellet based diet with the addition of fresh vegetables, fruit, cook and serve mixes, sprouts (our birds love sprouts!), millet spray, Higgins seed mix, etc.
Babies are played with and socialized every day to bring out their sweet personalities and natural curiosity. We give them lots of cuddles from an early age which makes them sweet and want to be with people. Our babies are not just handfed, they are HAND RAISED. There is a difference! We also encourage healthy independent play behaviors by providing lots of toys and time out on our play area. On nice days, our babies will spend a few hours outside playing in one of our spacious outdoor cages.
Once your baby is reserved, we send updates and pictures so you can watch your baby grow!
We care about each baby we sell and want the best for them and their new owners. We provide full support after the sale for the lifetime of your bird. Have a question? We are just an email or phone call away.
All babies are close banded for identification purposes and come with a hatch certificate, bird care information and written health guarantee. We take pride in our birds and it shows! Check out our customer comments page to read what others have to say.
