    What makes IRNs unique?

    Hello Avian Avenue! This is my first time posting. I adopted an juvenile IRN (probably f) about half a year ago. She's gotten pretty confident and has a lovely and somewhat sassy and stubborn personality. :angelic: I was wondering what experienced IRN parents think makes them different from...

    Aggressive Ringneck

    Hi there! I have an indian ringneck who is 3 years old and got him a little over a year ago. It was a bit rough in the beginning as he has a lot of anger/agression in him but ruled it off as bluffing. Over the year, he’s become very sweet and social (with an obsession of regurgitating and being...

    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...
