£40.00

The White Bellied Caique (Pionites leucogaster) and the Black Headed Caique (Pionites melanocephalais)  are known as the clowns of the parrot world. Not only from their bold colors,  but from their funny personality. They are relatively quiet as  far as no squawking, but can still make high pitched calls, learn  various whistles, and mimic other noises  as well. The White Bellied Caique originates in South America. They  weigh about 150-170 grams are  about 9- 10 inches in length. Their diet  in the wild consists of fruits  and seeds. Caiques also have an oil preening gland to clean their feathers, so those with allergies may consider one of these guys.

Description

Their average lifespan is about 30  years. All our babies are banded with a custom stainless steel band for identification.There is also a Lime Thighed Caique that is a cross between the White Bellied Caique Parrot and it’s subspecies, the Green Thigh Caique. Main difference between these two are the yellow versus the more green little legs. They are now coming up in popularity and being seen around more. We will hopefully have these in the future.
