Being quite social and outgoing, they are affectionate and inquisitive, and they love to show off.

A distinguishing characteristic of the Caique is a lovely ruffled looking white breast and belly. This gave rise to it’s name. ‘Caique’ is a term used to describe a full-dress, white shirt, with a ruffled front.
