Re: changes in ringneck overnight?

Thank you everyone I feel more relaxed now, he's such a clever chap that he probably Is bored with learning tricks and perhaps he would prefer some games instead, does anyone have any suggestions, my macaw loves peek a boo but Ecco doesn't seem too keen on it

changes in ringneck overnight?

Baby Indian ringneck biting and divebombing help!

Hello, I have recently taken in a 4-5 month old IRN, his previous owner used to play with him using his fingers as chew toys so as you can imagine hes a biter, he loves to go to you and be with people but only if he can sit on your head.

In fact, I also prevent the Budgie from landing on the Ringneck's cage, to protec...
