DIETS & FEEDING:
Although the Caique’s are a medium sized bird, they do need a large environment. The birds will suffer confined to a small cage. As with our Caique’s they Thrive on a pellet based diet that is also supplemented with Fruit & Vegetables. Here at AMK Aviaries, our Caique’s get feed Mixed Fruit & Vegetables of a morning along with their Vetafarm Nutri Blend and their seed. Their water bowls are re-filled once/twice per day with our automatic watering system depending on the Heat. Its important to provide them with a sustainable amount of fruit and vegetables due to seed and nutri blend not containing all the correct amount of nutrients they need. Real Food is also good for their Mental Health.
As for what mixed Fruit and Vegetables we feed our Caique’s, it consists of:
- Kiwi Fruit
- Passion Fruit
- Paw paw
- Corn Cobs
- Snow Peas
By providing our Caique’s with a sustainable diet like this is to ensure they are enjoying a Happy and Healthy Lifestyle.
