:hello: Your babies gorgeous

I know males get a dark ring around the neck but not sure what age they get it looks to have a faint dark line coming but I am just guessing I don’t know who to tag for you either that would know

maybe @Xoetix I know you want one so maybe you know I bit more than me

Hello and welcome!! :hello1:

Oh man I love ringnecks :heart: your little one is beyond cute! If I had to guess (and this is a total guess not based on anything except what I've read) I think it might be a male - he's got the faintest ring! How old is he?

Welcome to the Avenue :hiya:

I believe you can not tell the sex visually till they are approx 1 1/2 years old so a DNA test is the surest way to know if you need to now for sure now.

Basically to be accurate the DNA test is needed. There are two kinds. One you can do at home with plucked feathers and the vet does the better one with a drop of blood.

If I were to say I’d say it’s a male. I have a female IRN and she didn’t have that ring around her neck at the same age. But as others have said, DNA test is best :)
