Black Headed Caiques for Sale! If you are looking for constant entertainment and laughs, a caique is for you. They are super funny, clownish, and adorable. They make outstanding companions, and they never stop playing. They do require ample size caging. They need tons of room in their cage to run around and play with lots of toys. Training in this species is necessary but is typically easy (they are extremely smart!).
In the wild, Black-headed Caiques spend most of their time up in the treetops and love to play with twigs! They eat fruits, berries, and seeds, even fighting with each other over the seeds. They live in flocks, which upon perceived danger, become extremely still before rising into the air in a confusing show of cacophonous noise and flying feathers! Black-headed Caiques seem to have an endless energy supply and personalities, which are best described as? Manic? They love to play and bathe and need lots of leafy green branches for chewing. Black-headed Caiques are extremely sociable even though their talking ability is quite limited. If they are kept in a cage, they will need lots of exercise and playtime- getting a playpen is suggested! Caiques can be surprisingly aggressive and fearless among other birds, and they will often approach much larger birds. They are really not 6′ 5 and bullet-proof? as their demeanor might suggest, and they must be constantly supervised when in the company of larger birds. Their exceptional playfulness begs for a partner, and for those not interested in breeding, two females can do quite well together. A particularly amusing behavior is their habit of hopping rather rapidly across almost any surface, which gives them the look of a wind-up toy. Be sure your bird has many toys and perches in its cage to keep it amused.
The minimum size cage for one Caique is 24 X 24 X 24, the average size of Amazon-sized cages. A better choice would be the Cockatoo-sized cages, usually 36, long X 24 deep X 36 high. The bar spacing should be no larger than 3/4?. The cage must be long and tall enough to fit several perches, a variety of toys, swings, and vines. A Caique will use every square inch of the largest cage.
