You have probably heard of
Caiques' even if you haven’t ever seen one. They were imported
in small numbers. When importation stopped, breeders scrambled
to acquire these comical little bundles for the pet trade. We
are now starting to see the results of those breeding efforts
with increased availability for parrot enthusiasts.
Caiques' are the undisputed rodeo
clowns of the parrot world. Their coloring is almost as comical
as their personalities. They like being the center of attention
and are a joy to watch play, wrestle, and steal food from each
other. They are very easy to teach tricks and are capable of
completing difficult tasks.
like small children in that they can play very hard for a while
and then get tired somewhat suddenly and need a nap. They need
this down time which makes them a good pet for someone who is
gone a lot during the day. They do not need constant attention
and have the ability to entertain themselves when need be. They
will require lots of toys which will doubtless provide hours of
entertainment for your whole family.
