    So I got my Indian Ringneck named Ringo about a month ago. He has access to my entire room, but really only sits on top of his cage, and sometimes screams. I fill his bowl with food, and another with water, and another with fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds. He does not seem interested...

    African or Indian Ringneck

    Hello! We just got our little Banzai three days ago! When I bought Banzai I was told it was an African. That is what the pet store had it under. (I say it because we are waiting for the DNA test to come back on Banzai’s gender) I posted a picture of Banzai on Facebook and people kept saying it...

    Are IRNs generally cuddly birds?

    I’m a bird mama of two Bourke’s parrots and I love them to death. They are tame and hand trained but Bourkes are not a species that likes to hang out on your shoulder or be on you, give them a kiss, etc. I’ve been wanting a handfed IRN for over a year now and I really want to know if they’re...

    Taking an Indian Redneck Parrot

    Hi, I wanted some advice on my Indian redneck parrot, Buddy. I have had him for 2 months now and he’s 7 months old, however he’s very scared of me still. I know ( from what I have read) this is quite normal and I should be patient. The only thing I have managed to get him to do is go on a perch...

    Trust Issues (Indian Ringneck)

    I purchased an Indian Ringneck (6 months old) around 4 days ago and has been in its cage since. Whenever I try to get really close to the cage it starts to frantically fly side to side and also does the same when I try to change its feed. It isn't tame so would like for it to gain some trust in...
