    Hi All,
    New poster on a new site (to us). Just to say, we have had pet budgies for around 25 years. mY Wife has always been way upset on the demise of each bird, each living for approx 5-7 years. We have taught every bird to talk & quite a few tricks.
    After our last budgie passed we decicided NO MORE BIRDS. Then, we watched a youtube video on Caiques, we were absolutely smitten. Long story short is we we now have a 5 month old boy & a 3 month old girl Caiquie.
    Our budgies were always intelligent & friendly but I cannot believe how much our caiques are so trusting.
    It was due to reading on this site, that we decided to go with the clever parrot rather than the talkative one.
    Thanks for your site information.

    Hey, thanks for the welcome. We think this is a brilliant site, so informative & friendly (not like some of the others), where preaching seems to come before help & advise.
    Just to say, breakfast & teatime have become the 'laughing-time 'in our house now, as our babies join in the meals. Quite hilarious!
    Hoping to visit the site often, & will not hesitate to ask if we need help.
    Many Thanks.

    Hi Heather, we bought him from Ashington. He was already named Twizzle, so we stuck with it. They're both black-headed.

    Will try to get some pics of them, when we work out how to do it. Not very computer literate sadly.
