the CITES I ringneck is native to Ghana another of the same family the Echo (slightly larger) also known as the Mauritus parakeet is also on the list. but unfortunately the Seychelles parakeet and the Newtons Parakeet are thought to be extinct. @Parrot797 have you seen the blue and white Macaw called Silver (I know you are interested in rear mutations)
Yes,I think I have either had or seen all the available mutations of Macaws.

I also know someone who has the blue & white macaws, personally I don't like them, the golden ones are pretty but I am not keen on mutations of most species.

@Olsha Hi and welcome to the forum :)
Both parents must be registered (this only needs to happen once in their life time) and any chicks bred must then be registered if they are to be sold to new owners, all chicks bred in the same year by the parents the first chick costs think its £31.00 but all the other chicks bred that year from those parent birds are charged at £1.50 per application so if the parents have say 6 chicks bred the first one will cost £21 to register and the other 5 would cost £1.50 to register each.

You need a FED1012 for breeding Cites A classified birds.
this is the link to the guide on how to fill out the application form https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/599372/guid-fed1012.pdf
The application form is on this link https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/569930/form-fed1012.pdf
Fees are explained here https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/355264/cites-ag-ct-01.pdf

Hi @BEVERLEY MEERS and :welcome: to the forum. No you do not need to register/obtain an Article 10 for your companion bird.

Circumstances in which you would need to do so, would be for commercial purposes, including breeding, displaying to the public, TV work, or selling the bird. hope that puts your mind at ease:)

I think it’s a good idea to have microchipping done, but discuss it with your Vet. Most, but not all, carry out the process using a small whiff of anaesthetic Gas, which carries a small risk.
