    6 month old aviary bred Indian ringneck

    there is a little thing that may also help but many will not think of it, the placement of the feed bowl, you should always place it at the back of the cage, so your bird will have to go in to get it. it will give you that little extra time to close the door, if your bird see you coming you...

    6 month old aviary bred Indian ringneck

    ok when you get home hide the food from the cage, he will not have the opportunity to go in and get it quickly when you leave the room, let him see you put the food back about an half hour before you want to call it a night, just sit down and see if he is hungry enough to get his food,

    it one small step for man, one big step for bird kind, you are doing well in gaining trust, have you tried different treats to see what is his ultimate favorite? slowly make it a little more difficult for him to reach, by twisting your hand slightly away from his beak so he has to stretch...

    just put a cover on top of the budgie cage for now, this bird has not seen a budgie before, they are scared of each other but will soon get used to each being around, ringnecks are not known for attacking other birds but they do use there beaks as a warning, I have budgies and ringnecks out...

    Indian ringneck parrot

    IRN's will eat nearly any thing they are survivors and this is the main reason they are doing so well around England, so much depends on how active your bird gets, the main dry feed I use is Lean and fit by Johnson and Jeff, my birds will often try to get any of my other birds food, they...

    What to do?

    My recommendation as a first stop is the RSPCA have a look on there web site they will come around and see you and check that your place is suitable before you will be allowed one of there birds, but once you have adopted it the bird is yours

    Indian ringneck parrot

    I am not one to cover my birds cages and if I fill the need to I always keep one side open so the bird can see what is going on. ringnecks normally sleep well during the night they do not have panic attacks for no reason,

    yes I thought I cleared it up when it happened, I don't know what is worst for spreading around the place and finding it in the most unexpected places, sugar or bird seed and food, that's the trouble when the birds have freedom of the home, budgie seed sticks on every thing, Diana, he had to...
