Re: Indian ring neck behaviour

I'm certainly not the most qualified here, but I'm in a similar situation, and have been seeing real progress.

Hello

Hi! I'm from Brisbane, in my 20s, and as of almost two weeks ago have adopted a ten-month-old white ringneck. In general I realise that this may have been unwise, as young Cirrus has never been handled... but even scared, in a small temporary (and thus unfamiliar) cage with a much more energetic cou...
