Red and Silver were born at the 1st of May 2015.
We did not get our birds from a breeder. The family were they lived before did. They kept them at home in a small cage, while having the opportunity to fly around in their living room very
often. But after a year they find out that they did not have enough time to take care for the birds, and decided they needed to find a new and better place for them.
Because we knew they were social animals, used to live with a dog, so the chance they would go along with other animals was there, we did say yes and took the care for those two noisemakers.
We did make their lives better, by giving them a much bigger aviary in our living room (1 meter x 1 meter x 2 meter). And because they love to be outdoors in the summertime, they got an outdoor aviary around the same space there too.
Also don't forget we give them much and much time out of their aviary's, so they can go wherever they want to go.
What's also a good thing to know about Caiques, is they love to 'chop around' more than they love to fly. That's definitely NOT a reason to clip their wings so they can't even fly. So the wings of our feathered friends luckily aren't clipped and they do fly around very often.
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.
he 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. - from _ https://lafeber.com/pet-birds/species/caique/
