It looks like Mayzie is about ready to lay an egg, the first of this year. This is the typical schedule and she should lay 3-5 eggs.
- We will update this page as things progress. Once the eggs are in the nest it takes almost a month to hatch. It then takes about two months to wean the chicks. Therefore the chicks will be ready for a new home this summer.
- Please contact us if you are interested in the 2015 clutch.

We have 3 eggs in the nest (picture below) & Mayzie is doing a great job caring for them. We are anxious for the first to hatch.

Myles & Mayzie!
Myles and Mayzie are a mating pair of White Bellied Caiques. They have been our pets since they were babies and began mating in 2012.
In 2013 we had two babies that were sexed and turned out to be a male and a female. These babies were "co-parented" and are healthy, friendly chicks. They went to their new owners in September.
Last year (2014) we had 2 male chicks ready for a new home in late summer. We always DNA sex the chicks prior to sale. Contact us via email and we will be happy to keep you updated on availability in 2015. We only have one clutch of chicks available each year and we are located in Central Illinois. Pictures below were taken 29 May 2014. - Click pic to view -
We will add pictures for 2015 soon.
Lower pictures are from June 12 2014.
Both of the babies are males (June 25, 2014).
Both of these chicks have been sold.
