Up for adoption are two caiques: a 4 year old female Black Headed Caique and an 11 year old male White Bellied Caique. Caiques live up to and over 25 years so these two are still young. These two are best buds. They live in the same cage and will spend hours just snuggling and preening each other.
Hero, the male, is a little love. He loves to be out and on you, and absolutely loves bundling up in your shirt and falling asleep. He is trained on a harness and loves to go outside and is even potty-trained to only go to the bathroom in his cage.... (read more) He also has a small deformity call scissorbeak, which does not impede him at all and is easy to care for by filing (a vet can do this easily if you are not comfortable doing it alone).
Marni, the female, is a very typical caique. She's an energizer bunny who can get naughty from time to time, but once she gets to know you, she can be very sweet and loving. The two love to play on the floor and wrestle. They are bonded to each other but have not (and should not) be bred due to them being different species. They have never shown breeding or nesting behaviors.
These two need to find a new home together and will NOT be separated.
I am willing to sell the cage they live in (a gorgeous, large Aluminum Kings cage seen here: www.kingscages.com/ProductDetails.aspx?ProductID=ACA3325 ) with them for an additional $600 (the cage retails at almost $1000 and it is in great condition). They will come with all their toys, some food to get you started, a custom sewn cage cover for their cage, and a pedicure kit to take care of Hero's beak (if you would like it). Both birds are in perfect health, are used to being around other birds, cats and dogs. I am looking for an experienced home as caiques are not easy as a first bird. I am asking a fairly low adoption fee for them ($800 for both birds) but I WILL be picky when it comes to who they go home with. It is very important to me that they are loved and cared for correctly. Adoption fee is negotiable to the right home.
Please email me with any questions or inquiries.
I WILL ship to the right home at adopter's expense!!
