I was under the impression that it was a indian ringneck however he is a bit larger and a little different than my normal IRN's that is why I am posting picks for a little help because I can't find any IRN's that look like him?

Re: Ringneck Parrot

What colors are they are they healthy? What age are they ? Are they tame? Where are you located? All would be factors of price? I am sure anyone can sell a ringneck for any price they see fit :) 200 seems a good deal I think just depends I guess if that is what you where asking
