Suzycupcake13: It is important for your caique to learn to play and entertain himself on his own. It may take him awhile to realize you're not going to jump every time he screams, but he will learn it. I have an only caique, and the first year I had him this was something I had to do too. He's almost 3 years old now and does not scream for me anymore. Hope things work out for you. They are wonderful little birds and very smart!

I spoiled her so now I have to live with it but I'm trying to correct it and it's an uphill battle. A very large steep hill.She'll climb down her cage in my livingroom and run into my bedroom while I'm on the computer.And God forbid I'm on the phone while she's on my shoulder. She'll bite on the phone for my attention and if I switch ears she'll switch shoulders.
When she's quiet and playing by herself or with my conure it's a pleasure I cherish every moment of calmness.

When he call, I often whistle back. Just so he knows where I am. If it is him just being a brat, I just stay out of view until he stops screaming. The goal is to get him to make a more appropriate noise to call me (a whistle). If it takes him a while to figure that out, I might whistle, and he'll pick it up, and as soon as he whistles. I'll come to him. If he starts screaming again, I'll turn around.
When I leave the house he calls a bit. (It's quite funny... whenever I put my shoes on, he'll jump to me and refuse to get of my shoulder).
But when he knows Im not coming back, he'll settle down quickly. (I can hear him down the street...) it's only when he knows I am in the house that he gets bad.
The main thing is NEVER to run to your bird when he calls you like that. It's impossible to stop the flock cry all together, but try to replace it with something more pleasing =)
