I have White-bellied Caiques… and I LOVE them.
Are you thinking about getting a Caique parrot? If I were in your shoes, here are the things I’d want to know:
First, let me tell you that a Caique wouldn’t be my first pick if I had no parrots, but easily top 5 or top 3!
Caiques are amazing. They are full of life, energy and joy. Oh, and attitude! One problem with Caiques is that they are stubborn and do as they please- which makes them hard to handle if you aren’t accustomed to parrots. They are also messy!
If you are comfortable adopting a lifestyle in which you are engaging with two Caiques – because these are social parrots that play all day when they have a friend – and you don’t mind keeping their cage clean all of the time, because they get their cages dirty, then this could be a great companion(s) for you.
On the other hand, if you want an easier parrot as far as time and dedication go, then I wouldn’t recommend a Caique. There are a lot of other species that are more affectionate, like Green-cheek Conures, and that aren’t quite so full of stubborn joy!
