Hi everyone!
Before creating a thread I tried researching on this topic, but didn’t really find anything.

At what age ringnecks usually get their full length tail?

Here’s a bribe :D

Not entirely sure! My baby's tail was fully grown around 3 months old. A tiny bit eventually broke off because he's clumsy and gets in the weirdest scenarios and rubs his tail a lot..

Do you mean as adults when they get extremely long tails.

Yes long tails! Not as much as an alex, but still very long. The longest feathers are at the centre of the tail. With my plumhead his tail has been getting longer each molt, but only his two white tipped -extra long- feathers.

The IRN tail is as long as their body from top of head to tail base. This helps them have fast and controlled flight :) They are pretty speedy little parrots.

Pictures provided for cute factor as well as tail positions :D

Yes, they fly amazingly well and fast :D I always get fascinated by how fast Zazu flies after me and reaches me when I go to another room :xflove:

As he gets stronger and adult muscle start to fill in he will go even faster! He will probably mostly grow to his adult stature in his first year and it will take about another year for him to fully develop his buff little flight muscles. This is part of why it is SO important for young parrots to get to fly. My tiny plumhead can definitely fly faster than I can run.
