Re: IRN/mustache parakeet....?!

He does look like a hybrid. Don't know anything about mustached parakeets so can't help. Regarding his legs, hes looks like he has a slight case of splayed legs. When they are chicks in the nest , a lack of nesting material/concave nest bottom can result in the parents/siblings sitting on the younge...

Re: Our Second Feather Baby! Not yet named

If the mother of the chick wasn't a lutino ( or albino ) , then the owner is quite right in saying the chick is a female .

Congratulations on the baby ! She is adorable :D

Re: Hello Everyone - I'm a novice owner

Seeds are alright but a diet with pellets and fresh food is better for your birds. Ringnecks are wonderful eaters and will try just about anything you give them. Start introducing them to fruits like apples, pears, melon , papaya , banana or nuts like Cashew or almonds. My ringneck is so food motiva...

Re: Hello Everyone - I'm a novice owner

Hello, I stay in the UAE as well and I know all about the pet markets here. They will do anything to make a sale even if it involves sick birds. Most of the birds they call 'tame' have been heavily abused and beaten into submission . They sometimes even drug the birds to make them seem docile and un...

Re: Should I get my female a friend

She does have a nasty streak and she can be quite moody at times, but only to others (not to me, thank goodness). Just from the couple of replies I've received, though, I've decided to leave well enough alone. She will bring someone home if she feels the need. I think you're right about her possibl...

Re: Should I get my female a friend

I live in Dubai too and it is quite amazing that you've managed to build such a bond with a wild bird ! Since she is wild , I'm quite sure she is capable of finding herself a mate. IRN females tend to be nasty overall and it could turn ugly if she decides she doesn't like her new friend. Most parrot...

Re: What mutation is this....?

I had a sky blue pallid showing exactly the same markings . After two months with me , she moulted out those markings . In my case it was due her not having an appropriate diet with her previous owners. You should get your bird tested for diseases or nutritional deficiency.

They're quite abundant here in Dubai . It always amazes me to see them thriving even during these summer months when the temperature can go above 50 degrees. We also have quite a few Alexandrine's .

I guess this is the usual independent behavior ringnecks are known for . I guess the sudden change from the at...

I got one of my tiels indoors to try and socialize the ringneck with it but the baby actually flew and tried to attack the tiel. The baby ...

I had been feeding him thrice a day until then . The issue is that he hasn't begun eating other foods either. He takes a f...

Re: can IRN and cockatiels live together?

I don't think its a good idea . IRNs are MUCH more aggressive than tiels . You could let them all out together supervised but don't try housing them together . Even if they seem to get along generally ,the IRNs are perfectly capable of killing tiels if they're in a bad mood .

Re: Help I do not understand

I had 2 wild-type green females for around 6 years . They were extremely bonded and displayed similar behaviour as to what you mentioned in your earlier posts . The funny thing was that the females would always switch as to who would be on 'top' every season .

You guys mentioned its some kind of pallid . What does the mutation do to the colour of the bird ?
What is its mode of inheritance?
