Pet Spotlight: Caiques

Looking to add a new feathered friend to your home? Caique parrots are a beautiful, intelligent and active parrot. These short, stocky birds have plenty of personality to go along with them. Here are a few FAQs to help you care for your new parrot.

What should you feed your Caique?

There are pelleted foods and seeds that are specially formulated for your Caique. In addition to these pellets and seeds, you can supplement your Caique's diet with fruits and vegetables like spinach, broccoli and bananas.

How can you keep your Caique entertained?

Caiques love to have plenty of playtime. Give your pet parrot plenty of toys in their cage, as well as plenty of love and attention.  Be sure to provide your parrot with a minimum of 3 to 4 hours outside of their cage per day. This will help your bird burn excess calories and stretch their muscles.

What type of housing do they need? 

Your Caique parrot will need a cage to call it's home. Although small, these birds can be aggressive if kept  with others.  Provide your bird with a large environment to keep this energetic parrot from feeling confined.
