lucky! I love caiques!fugu99 wrote:Thanks, I heard about sun conures and their tendency to be aggressive and loud. We are actually looking at Caiques now, just because theyre so darn irresistible. We wont be really looking into getting one until next year though, or when we move out of this one bedroom apartment. We need more space. Caiques are aggressive but not loud in particular, and even if they arent the best friend for Hannibal we'd like to get one. With more room we can keep birds in seperate cages, or rooms if need be. I really do think we need to bite the bullet and buy another cockatiel to keep Hannibal happy. I think thats the only way, really. I hear green-cheeked conures are sweet though, they show off in the store.
Hannibal has been going through spring molt... gah its been terrible. I think hes beginning to feel better. For the last two days hes had a fever (you can tell, his feet were really hot) and hes been acting miserable. He makes needy little chirps that sound like hes in pain, all those new pinfeathers pushing through. Hes also exhibited the need to be left alone... the 'dont touch me' attitude... and he almost bit Tony when Tony went up to his cage the other day. Solution.. get a towel, transfer him to the closet so he can take a nap and reset his mood. Poor guy. Right now hes devouring the back of the computer chair, though.
wow, ive never seen a tiel act like that.
