Chrissy is our beautiful little lutino indian ringneck and her bright personality reflects her beautiful yellow plumage. When we got Chrissy as a baby we knew very little about ringnecks, but it didn't take long to fall totally in love with her. Chrissy is very tame and will take love from anyone. She loves to play and shred anything she can get ahold of and she talks up a storm. I have met many people who claim that ringnecks are not good companion birds and can be very mean but I think they are horribly misunderstood birds. We own everything from budgies to macaws and our ringneck is, hands down, the sweetest and most charming bird in our flock. The key to owning a happy, healthy, and sweet ringneck is making sure that you spend time with your bird every day because ringnecks don't take kindly to being ignored (You wouldn't either if you were someones pet)! I think one of the only drawbacks to owning ringnecks is their loud, shrill call that sounds like "BAM BAM BAM" but this noise can be kept to a very minimal amount when properly taken care of. Overall these are awesome birds and charm their way into the hearts of just about anyone, even those who don't really care for birds!

The indian ringneck parrot is my favorite animal and this website has helped me and my ringneck get closer together
I found my yellow bird in the snow on January, he (or she) was terrified and cold. At first I thought he will not make it. But he is. Now he is with me 7 months, but I was told he can not learn to speak - and hear I found he can. What is the truth?! He is now nice with me but doesn't like any strange faces, he becomed scared and starts to scream loudly. But he also likes my two dogs and my little parrot (I don't know english name). He loves to eat from hand and he is very, very happy when I look just at him and speak only to him - so when I talk to someone I ALWAYS look at him - otherwise he is so loud we can not hear each other. He was very young when I found him - at least I think. he had black eyes without yellow ring, and feathers were not is such "order" around neck as now. I like him but sometimes he is so loud and I just have to do something what doesn't include his presence - this is something he hates the most.
i had an indian ring neck i bought from a pet store. the story i was told is this- "he" was a male because of the colored ring around his neck and he was young, not true!!he was far from young. he came from a breeding sanctuary and would no longer breed for them so they pawned him off on a pet store which in turn led him to me. he was not able to be handled by anyone but seemed very content in his new home with me. five years later he got away from me outside during a move. good luck little buddy! miss you lots. cheeco was his name and waking me up was his game! investigate your bird before you buy. tks!
A week ago I found a beautiful ringneck on my balcony. Domesticated and soooo cute! We're a family of six --mom, dad, three brothers and myself--and he just loves it when we all come home. He's extremely loud and likes attention. A few days before I found him, I passed a pet shop and wished for a bird. He's my good luck charm...
Thames pet shop has sold us a bird we named Sunshine. He eats out of your hand is not at all aggressive, drinks when offered water. Preens our hair sits happily on your finger, shoulder arm, flys short distances from one person to another. He is more out of the cage than in and has so far been watched very carefully so he doesn't bite the furniture. We are totally in love with our new bird. Thanks for sharing your stories too they are interesting.
I have a blue female ringneck parakeet, I have owned her for six years. I work for a petshop and bonded with her the day she came in.. I have had several types of birds, but she is a favorite..Only one thing, she hates everyone but me!LOL I am the only one who can handle and feed her, she doesn't talk.........but she is very vocal with sounds....I think this is a great beginner small parrot.....Be prepared they do have a loud scream!But I wouldn't give her up for the world =)
Just lost my Indian Ringneck (Casey)and her loss affected me more than any other pet that I have had. I had her 12 years and from day one she loved me like no other. Her personality and spirit exceeded her size. She would sway on her perch and put her little head under her wings when she saw me. I absolutely loved that bird and I am desperately trying to find another one. I have had many pets in my lifetime including birds but none have touched my heart like her. Highly recommend
I have a blue ringneck named Virgil. He is by far the best bird we have ever owned. He stays on his cage and likes to sit on top. We have never closed the door to his cage and he has never flown off. He loves his home. We also have never had a need to clip his wings. He has learned to say a few words and is very talented and does a few tricks. His favorite foods are fresh corn on the cob, mango, grapes, broccoli, and peanuts. I highly recomend this type of bird!!
