As of May 9th we have two happy healthy chicks (see picture below) but the final egg has not hatched. So it looks like we will have two birds this year.

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.
This year (2014) we had 2 male chicks ready for a new home in late summer. They were priced at $850 each and were DNA sexed 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 -
Lower pictures are from June 12 2014.
Both of the babies are males (June 25).
Both of these chicks have been sold.
