Our Black Headed Caiques For Sale 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 caique for sale near me can make an excellent family companion.
Every hand-fed Black Headed Caique parrot for sale 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, Kindly contact us for more pictures, videos, and information.
Black headed caique has, obviously, a black head and black beak, while the white-bellied has, you guessed it, a white belly (so does the black-headed, incidentally), horn-colored beak, and a bright orange and yellow head.
The caique is a stocky bird, surprisingly heavy for its size, as most new owners will point out.
Well known as the clown of companion birds, caiques are loved by bird fanciers for their outgoing nature and ability to make people laugh with their playful antics. The proper way to pronounce caique is “kai-eke” — don’t ask for a “cake” at the bird shop, or they might point you to the nearest bakery!
If the African grey parrot is the intellectual of the bird community, and the macaw is the show-off, then the caique is the clown. Caiques have been called clowns more often than Barnum and Bailey have had shows in three rings, and for good reason-the clown is a truly appropriate metaphor for this medium-sized mischief maker.
