I've also been told that Ringnecks are ok with citrus foliage, but so far i've not tried it. cheers, ...

that seems to be the whole point of being an IRN - destroying things! my little guy loves to tear up everything from his food to plants to paper and anything else left in his path. they really are a great pet! thanks so much for your reply. Cheers, :D

Leaves and Branches

Hi,

Can anyone tell me which selection of leaves and branches your IRN enjoys ripping up and that are safe to eat? I've read the eucalyptus branches are ok, but not sure if the leaves are suitable as well.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers, :D

Hi,

Thanks for that. All is working out well and in such a short time Sunny is now freely climbing up onto my hands and onto my shoulder. No more biting and no need for the gardening gloves!

So far all is going well with him - just got to get him a big cage!

Cheers,
Bec :D
