We have a Latino Ringneck Parakeet, his name is Sylvester. He is such a good bird, but sometimes talks ways too much, and can get annoying. He has a very high vocabulary, and says things such as: What are you doing, Good boy, Sylvester, Im gonna get you, boggity boogity boogity (from nascar), and of course hello. Those are just a few of the things he says. They are very smart, and learn very fast. Sylvester is 1 yr. old and will be 2 in June. He is just now starting to get a rose color around his neck, which is going to be so pretty once it fully comes in. He loves eating raisens, apples, broccoli, and cooked carrots. He also does this weird thing with his eyes when he is getting aggrivated or about to bite, so when I see that I back away. Otherwise, he will come to me and gives me kisses, and is such a wonderful bird. I would highly recommend this type of bird.
I have one blue male ring necked parrot his name is mac. He is 3 years old, he loves having a bath, he loves eating apples and loves watching mac cool and pauline. I got a blue female ring necked parrot she is 5 months old she loves having a bath and eating apples. Her name is sweety. They are the best parrots in the world. I think ring necks are really cute and are very smart.
i live in australia. about 2yrs ago i was in the local pet shop when i walked past a cage that had a lutino about 6mths who apparently was not tame. but she seemed to really like me so i took her home. she calls our child tiffany, calls the dogs, whoof whistles at men, and says a whole lot of other stuff. my neighbour actually thinks someone is talking to her when she is outside. they really learn very quick, and she does this freaky thing with her eyes before she bites. i really have to get used to not calling indie a girl, because after 2 1/2yrs she has started to get a red ring so i guess that means she is a boy.
I HAVE/HAD A BLUE INDIAN RINGNECK. (UNTIL LAST WEEK). HE IS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL BOY. HE LOVES MY COCKATOO AND WOULD GIVE HIM KISSES AND SWEET TALK HIM ALL DAY. HE IS A BETTER TALKER THAN ANY PARROT I HAVE EVER HAD. SUCH A SWEET BIRD. HE WAS ALMOST A YEAR OLD WHEN I GOT HIM AND I WAS TOLD HE WAS HAND TAMED. WELL, WITH A LOT OF WORK WE FELL FOR EACH OTHER AND I'VE HAD HIM FOR 8 YEARS. I WAS GETTING READY TO RE-CLIP HIS WINGS the other day, AND HE TRIED TO FLY TO OUR COCKATOO TO BE CLOSER TO HIM, AND OFF HE FLEW. I FOLLOWED HIM AROUND TOWN FOR A FEW DAYS. HE LOVED FLYING AND NOW I CAN'T FIND HIM. COME HOME SKYLER, COME HOME. WE MISS YOU. TONI, IN FONTANA ,CA
My babies name is ADEL, he's about 6 months and only had him for 30 days.
he was not hand feed. I worked with him every day like a baby, 10 to 12 hours a day, and even go to sleep with him. He bites me about a hundred times and I wanted to ring his neck. But I love the towel, if it wasn
I have a blue indian ring necked parrot. His name is Mac he is nearly three years old. He loves giving me kisses and hugs. He loves eating apples and having a shower. When i take him outside he follows me like a dog. I never clipped his wings. once he flu away and the next day he came back, he is very clever. He can say my name, when i go to school he looks at me and trys to say bye bye sarah. He lives with his friends two senagl parrots, one cockatiel, and one budgie. The senagal parrots names are Cola and Fanta. The cockatiel's name is Polly. The budgie's name is Mr.Blue. I think that a ring necked parrot is the best parrot in the world.
These birds are so great. I had a blue cinnamon ringneck male who recently passed away and I was heart broken. He was the sweetest little thing you ever did see and he would just love to give you kisses all day long. His favorite word was "twinkle", and dispite being frightened by any loud sound, he would go to anyone and climb up their shoulder and give kisses. I knew I could never replace him, but I recently got another 6 week old blue male and I am so happy. As young as he is, he already kisses your face and is eating fruits and trying all kinds of other foods. All of my birds eat like pigs and now he is too. I can tell he'll be an early talker because he's already picking up lots of sounds and bird calls from my macaw and my amazon. He is such a sweetheart already, unless I try to talk to one of the other birds while I am holding him. he gets so mad and bites so I have to be careful and pay close attention to him (as well as my other birds, but not at the same time). He's a good boy though and I love him so much. If your looking to buy a bird and don't know what kind, ring necks should be your choice by far. They will get along with your whole family.
I have a Lutino ringneck named Dazee, she likes to play Boo under her night cover and always says thankyou for her food. I have had her for only 6 months and when I come home from work she always says hello and gives me a cute whistle.

Anna & Chrissy 9/14/2005
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!
