Re: very dark beak

that some how sounds a bit like a alexandrine ringneck, but it shouldn't be as the mutation is not likely to be a alex, compare your bird with google images of alex's. It might just be that your bird is unique, like how everyone person has a different skin colour.

Some Questions

it seems that when looking at most baby birds, their feet are HUGE! does it mean that the feet grow at a slower rate after hatching or dont grow at all? It just seems that baby ringneck feet have a larger feet to body ratio than an adult! I also want to ask if a DF violet is always darker in colour ...

In IRNS, males are good speakers as the males =)

Ringneck tails

I've seen many ringnecks with long and short tails... does that change with age or does a ringneck with a shorter tail (in ratio to the body) stay like that?

white head white tail and clear head clear tail

i want to ask what is "clear" meaning- is it the original colour (green) showing in the feathers? and also is it possible to only have a "white tail" and no "white/clear head" at the same time for a DARK colour like DF violet? [edit: kinda answered my own question http://www.mcw-indianringnecks.com....

Sleeping birds

This may sound a bit stupid but do Indian ringnecks (along with other similar birds) sleep on the perch or in some kind of nest/ box?
