    New Caique!

    So I have been talking to an owner of a bird rescue here in MN and I am going to adopt another BH Caique! His name is Zorro and he is about 5 years old. I have yet to meet him, but I will be on Friday! I hope he likes me so I can take him home in the next couple of weeks. He has tested positive for Chlamydia (Psittacosis) and has been being treated for the last month. He went to the vet yesterday to get re-tested and we will get the results back probably next week. Don't worry, I wil be taking a full shower and scrub down after I visit him so I do not spread it if he still has it. I will have to leave town to go see him so I will be staying at my parents' house anyway, so threre are no birdies to infect, but yes, I will be taking precautions and will be changing clothes, washing and sanitizing them and probably wearing shoes I can just throw away. Here is his picture:

    I'm glad he will find a home with you!

    I always thought Zorro would be the perfect name for a Black Headed Caique.

    Re: New Caique!

    Yes, I thought it was the perfect name too. I love having a "z" in a Caique's name....Dweezel and Zorro! I just love it!

    Re: New Caique!

    Cute! Zorro is a great name. It kinda reminds me of a black capped conure I saw at a shop in town named Fedora Clever and adorable without being corny.

    He is very handsome.

    He is through a rescue so he adoption fee is VERY low. I'm always wanted to adopt one, rather than go through a breeder, just because I know there is someone out there who has to give up there wonderful Caique! I only had to look, and there he was! Now hopefully he likes me

    Hey, I just had a thought. Now when you talk to strangers, you can tell them how before you brought your true love home, you had to treat him for chlamydia.

    Re: New Caique!

    Maggie, are your Caiques siblings? I think I recall hearing about them before. Do they wrestle together? I hope Dweezel and Zorro will eventually get along to the point of playing like that together, but I know they may not even like each other.

    So I went to see Zorro last Friday! He is just a doll! He doesn't talk much, but makes the cutest noises! He also puffs out his air sacs and makes a "woot" noise, I think he likes showing off for me. He played on his back and completely opened up for me! It was great! The only problem (which really isn't a problem) was when his foster mom came in to see how we were doing. He hates his foster mom, so when I tried to show her how nice he was for me, he nailed me a bunch of times in the hand like he was saying, "stay away from that evil woman!" Here is a pic and a video:

    They are from the same parents but a different clutch. Dash is from the 1st clutch of the 2005 season and Lilly is from the 2nd clutch. They are inseperable. Their fav thing is to fight with each other while hanging upside down. I am trying to get a pic of that to send in for the contest.

    Here is a pic of them.

    Re: New Caique!

    Here's an update:
    The owner of the rescue emailed me today to tell me this:

    "The first reports are that neither Zorro nor Angelo were shedding Chlamydia, so probability that he's contageous is very minimal. Yea!!!

    Still waiting to learn if he's a carrier or if we medicated it out of his system. Should know by Tues."

    Yay! So I should be going to get him next weekend if he is free and clear! I got his cage all set up and everything already! I just have to put in the grate at the bottom.

    The cage is a lot bigger than it looks. It is 2' X 2' X 3'. I hope he likes it!
