Black Headed Caiques love attention. They can be quite affectionate and enjoy playing with a human companion or just sitting with them.
For pet Caiques, I recommend a minimum of 24″ x 24″ floor space. A larger, 24″ x 30″ or even 36″ wide is better and will accommodate a future Caique companion! Recommended bar spacing is 3/4″ or 7/8″. However, you can go up to a maximum of 1″. Caiques will use every inch of cage space they are given. A Black-Headed Caiques can make an excellent family companion.
Every hand-fed Black Headed Caiques is weaned on to a high variety diet. They are weaned onto fruits and veggies, a soak and sprout mix we make here in the store, high variety seed that we also make here in the store, and naturally colored pellets. If you have questions regarding this baby or any others that we have available, Please Feel free to contact us for more pictures, videos, and information.
The Black Headed Caique is a beloved type of parrot, known for its vibrant colors and playful demeanor. These intelligent and curious birds are a joy to have as pets, and are guaranteed to bring laughter and fun into your home. With their popularity as pets, it should be relatively easy to acquire a Black Headed Caique of your own.
Caiques are medium-sized parrots, with a compact build and short tail feathers that give them a sturdy appearance. It can be challenging to tell males and females apart, as they look identical. They have a comical appearance, with fluffy white feathers on their chest and belly.
These birds are incredibly friendly, albeit not known for their talking ability. They thrive on playfulness and social interaction, and having a companion bird can be beneficial for them. One amusing habit of Black Headed Caiques is that they tend to hop quickly across surfaces, giving them the appearance of a wind-up toy. Make sure to provide plenty of toys and perches in their cage to keep them entertained.
Caiques are known for forming strong bonds with their owners, and require plenty of love and attention. They love to play and explore, and can keep themselves entertained for short periods of time. Given their long lifespan of up to 30 years in captivity, they can be an excellent choice for a long-term pet.
When it comes to feeding, Black Headed Caiques have a relatively simple diet. Store-bought seed mixes, supplemented with green vegetables and selected fruits, are sufficient to provide them with all the essential nutrients and vitamins they need. They love apples, sweet oranges, grapes, pears, and seasonal soft fruits like raspberries and blackberries.
Overall, caiques are delightful pets that will bring a lot of joy and laughter into your home. They are easy to care for and have simple dietary requirements, making them an accessible choice for many bird owners. With their playful and inquisitive nature, they will undoubtedly become an essential part of the family in no time.
