Hand-fed babies are playful, curious, and energetic. In fact, Caiques have commonly been called the "clowns of the bird world" for their funny antics and amazing acrobatics. Both the Conures and the Caiques have oil-based preening glands, which means that their dander is kept to a minimum. This makes them a good choice of bird for families with allergies. However, the Caiques differ slightly from the Conures (and all other parrots) when you examine their down feathers (the extra-fluffy feathers underneath the colored feathers). Where most birds have white down feathers, the Caiques have grey. Both the Conures and the Caiques will have a life span of about 10-30 years, and the Conures (excluding Golden Conures) are relatively inexpensive. But, if you have a little extra money to splurge, the more expensive Caiques make excellent and entertaining companions as well.
All of our birds come with an extensive health guarantee: We guarantee that the bird you are acquiring is free from any harmful diseases and does not have excessive amounts of any harmful bacteria.
Testing expenses are your responsibility; should there be any minor health issues that require treatment, we pay for all medications and all medical treatment at a Veterinarian of our choice. If a Vet exam reveals a life-threatening disease or serious genetic issues, then we will either replace your bird or give you a full refund of the purchase price.
All of the above having been said, we will not nor have we ever sold a bird which we thought was ill. Since parrots hide when they are sick, we can not always determine the true health of a parrot visually. It is for this reason that we offer the above guarantee; you are not required to test your parrot, but if you do, we have a strong guarantee to insure that you are starting out with a healthy parrot.
We look forward to a long relationship with our customers and their birds. Our goal is to be with you for the next 30-50 years, providing safe toys, proper diets, and non-toxic cages and play gyms for your companion parrot.
(Please note that all diagnostic testing is the responsibility of the buyer.)
