We make Momo breakfast everyday. He gets a variety of fruits and vegetables, depending on what’s in season, and what looks good at the store. We try not to make it look like a fruit bowl, as too much fruit/high energy food will give Momo more than enough energy for his lifestyle requirements.

His preference for what he eats 1st changes almost everyday, which is good because what’s in season changes too, but he is always happy when he finds a sweet morsel like a sultana, some date, or a piece of fig.

Making breakfast has been a great way to start our day, we get to bond a bit in the morning and Momo is happy to go back to his cage to have breakfast once it’s ready. We don’t always give him nuts while preparing the food. If he is keen on exploring, or in this case, to keep him on camera, the lure of a nut will keep him occupied until it’s all gone.

Please consider looking at some of Momo’s other videos, commenting or subscribing, it all helps Momo’s channel grow into something bigger and better.

      Peanuts in shells are very dangerous for parrots. Please look up Aspergillosis.

      I just found you. I always like to see what other people are doing with their Caiques. I have 5 female Caiques. There are 2 white bellied and 3 black headed. All are female. One of the black headed girls is a rescue. She was raised on a seed only diet. Watching the other birds is a big plus in convincing her to try a new diet. My avian vet told me not to give peanuts as they sometimes contain mold. My birds, except for the rescue are fully flighted. They have access to most of the house. I keep the bedroom and bathroom doors closed. Two of them like showers the other three like to bathe in a large stainless steel basin at least every other day. Obviously I adore Caiques. I have them whistling and laughing. One is trying to speak. But, as you know, Caiques aren’t known for speaking. I look forward to following you.😊

      I just wanted to say how much I enjoy Momo! Thank you for sharing the adventure with your caique! I have been researching small parrots for months, and really want a caique too.
