Question about Ringneck....

Soon I will be buying a Ringneck parrot from a breeder that I can trust. I just want to ask a few questions. I was thinking of making a breeding box (post) but not for breeding, for it to sleep in it if it wants to. Most of the time it will only go in there to lay eggs but If it gets cold, it can cr...

Re: Whats the (best) suitable cage for my ringneck(READ BELO

Hi Mick It's hard to make a judgement without seeing the cages. I think the sizes are ok. The second cage has the biggest volume so should offer marginally more flapping wing space. (I assumed that the first cage is 160x60x60 as the 3rd measurement wasn't given.) I think the rule of thumb with cage...

Re: New ring neck

I think a good name is Ziggy. I'm new to Ringnecks as well and I'm
getting mine in a couple of months; I'm calling him/her Sprout. In the near future,
I may be getting a cockotiel, I may name it Ziggy. Ziggy and Sprout!

Michael I think you may need to learn more about the topic. By handraising a bird, you are doing all those things you describe. The person handraising the bird normally leaves seeds and fruit etc lying around and the bird will eventually start to eat it by itself. As for learning to fly, I think th...
