    Can we talk about caiques?

    My boyfriend and I have moved out of an apartment and into a house. Yay! Starlight is doing wonderful here; she's so happy to be near a big window with blinds that open to a reveal a natural and bird-filled yard. She converses with them every morning and seems to be overall much happier!

    Now, once we get a bit more settled, we're planning to put in an application to adopt a caique from our local parrot rescue. I've always wanted to own a larger parrot, especially a caique, because of how vibrant and hilarious they're described to be. I showed my boyfriend a video of and unloaded my info-dump about them, and he's since become extremely interested in purchasing one. He began asked me about how to obtain one and what we'd need, and even found an amazing bird cage online that's huge and (somehow) in budget! I'm pretty aware of the care necessary for larger parrots, which has prevented me from adopting one in the past, but now I'll probably be able to stay home, and thus be able to spend time caring for the bird. Is there anyone on this forum who has experience with caiques that you'd like to share, as well as any advice, warnings, much-needed info, or even just cool stories?

    Also, we do plan to socialize Starlight and the caique, and would also like advice on the best way to do this, if it is a good idea at all, because I've heard caiques can become aggressive or even homicidal if they become jealous! D:

    Thanks!
