Re: Taming a 2+ year old rescue??

He also no longer plucks at all! And is currently in love with my female cockatiel, he brings her gifts (broccoli usually). It's adorable!

Re: Taming a 2+ year old rescue??

His cage is bigger than his previous one, and he is only inside when I cook, or go out, otherwise he is free range, in my house! He is doing well, still, even with powdered peanut butter tips pellets out all over my floor! But he eats more fruit/veg/rice ect than he does seeds. His taming is going w...

Re: Taming a 2+ year old rescue??

He will not even touch pellets at all. He throws them all over the floor, emptys the bowl then growls at it!!!! So I have been leaving seeds, however he barely eats seeds. His diet is atleast 80% fruit/veg.

Re: Taming a 2+ year old rescue??

Here are some photos of his area, big cage, playstand uptop and playstand in the middle! The other cage to the side barely showing is the tiels cage (a safe distance so they can retreat). I will also add he doesn't really play with toys, there is one toy he will bash with his head and giggle, but th...

Taming a 2+ year old rescue??

Hi there, I recently rescued a yellow/rose ringed Indian Ringneck, I have had him a little over a month now, and am after advice on taming/training. He is male, and over 2 yrs old (no exact age as he is a rescue). He is extremely cage aggressive, bluffing as soon as you walk near it. I cannot even c...

Re: What to Feed your Parrot (recipes, toxicities, links too

Hey guys! I have just rescued a beautiful male IRN. I was wondering, is it safe to chop up some fruit/veg, then freeze it? and thaw to feed? Only asking as I always see awesome bulk deals :)

Re: Hello! Very new to ringnecks! Rescuing one~

Good to hear! I have heard conflicting things from different people, ranging from "your cockatiels are going to get killed" to "make sure he doesnt try to mate with your female cockatiel" :| So I was very wary and stood near them while they interacted, my male tiel gave him a bit of a peck when he s...

Best types of toys??

Hi guys, have rescued a beautiful IRN male, the yellow colored! I am wondering what the best toys to get him would be? I also have 2 cockatiels but he doesnt seem interested in their toys, so was thinking maybe foot toys? I'm not sure. (Ps I am in Australia). Thanks!

Hello! Very new to ringnecks! Rescuing one~

Hey there, from Newcastle, NSW, Australia!!! I recently have started fostering (pretty keen to adopt the big sook!) a rescue indian ringneck! He grew up bonded with a cockatiel, and thinks he is one, his partner passed away and he has started plucking! I have 2 tiels here which he seems to like (if ...
