The attributes listed in this thread are the experiences of each individual and your experiences may differ with your individual bird. First, THE GOOD! I have had Keiba for a few years now, and my experience has been nothing but joyful. Keiba has a friendly personality, and he is very intelligent, outgoing, independent, playful and loving. He enjoys bathing, he loves toys, he is great when it comes to food, he will try almost anything, he is hilarious and will make you laugh with the things he does, and he is kind of crazy and clowny in the way Green Cheeks are, he also talks a lot, maybe too much, but he is always splurting out new, unexpected words. Indian Ringnecks have been given a bad reputation by people saying they make a horrible companion/pet, but I beg to differ, a lot.. if you do your research, you will find that they do have wonderful characteristics, and qualities of being a feathered friend. I will add too, Indian Ringnecks are not for everyone, you do need to have a strong understanding with this species, and be willing to put in everything to meet their personal needs. Second, THE BAD! They can develop behavior problems.. for example, two of the most often seen behaviors are biting, and excessive screaming. When they scream it is incredibly loud, and I mean ear splitting loud. And their bites can be quite nasty too, they can, and will draw blood. Indian Ringnecks also go through a bluffing stage (they can be aggressive during this time), in which all birds do, where they will really test, and push you as far as they can. If during the bluffing stage, any aggression/biting is not dealt with properly, they will continue to be biters, so it is important that you don’t reward this behavior, rather work through it with the bird. Third, THE UGLY! I can’t think of anything for ugly, I think what I have said above in bad, could also be put here, but ugly would be mainly just their screaming if anything.
