    IRN head petting

    I only pet my female IRN on the head, but lately she's making clucking sounds and leaning over with her head up and eyes super pinned. It looks a bit like a hormonal female IRN. I'm even avoiding touching her beak. Today just when I lifted my finger over her head, she did this behavior. Do...

    What does this sound mean?

    My little approx. 15 week old Ringneck guy makes plenty of different sounds. From loud contact calls, to tiny and adorable peeps. However, there's one sound he makes that I can't quite pinpoint. I've tried looking online for any info about bird sounds, but I can't find anything that sounds like...

    How do your IRNs like to be bathed?

    Looking to introduce my baby Indian Ringneck to bathing soon! He's still young, but we still need to keep those feathers clean :p What methods do you all use? I've heard from several sources that these birds are not the biggest fans of water, but of course each one's an individual. I was...

    Bird baths

    Hello everyone, I wanted to ask if it's normal for a bird to take baths every day?. My ringneck takes baths in his water bowl sometimes more than once a day. I give him showers twice a week so I was wondering if it's normal or can it be something else? He's free of parasites as I took him to the...

    Does this look safe for my bird to play with?

    Hey guys my ringneck really seems to love this headphone case I have. I'm thinking on putting it at the bottom of his cage because he absolutely tears it down do you guys think it's ok to chew on?

    Indian Ringneck behavioral problem update

    How's it going guys, my ringnecks is doing better with more toys and occupation. Interestingly, it seems like he does the pacing/looking up when he sees new people. I have guest over and he shows the behavior but tends to calm down after a few minutes.

    Stargazing in parrots

    Hello, I got my Indian ringneck about 2 months ago and he has been pacing left and right and looks up at the same time. I took him to the vet and he just said it can cause feather plucking and to get him a friend to prevent that but that's too much noise for me he also said to keep him out his...

    Indian Ringneck Nail Cut

    We recently brought our Indian Ringneck home, and I don't think his nails have ever been clipped. They dug into our skin and cut it up so after lots of research we decided to trim them ourselves since just a consultation at the vet is over $100 I know it will happen to every owner at least...
