Indian Ring Neck $349 Females , $499 males|
As most of the parakeet group, you can tell the difference between Indian Ring Neck males and females by appearance. The male has a black ring around his neck that the female lacks.
Approximately 16 inches in length, Indian Ring Necks are found naturally in Asia and Africa. Intelligent show offs, they usually love to be taught tricks and games. Again, like most of the parakeet species, they are excellent talkers and can be taught dozens of words.
Their diet should be a pelleted variety along with some high quality seeds and nuts. In addition, they will appreciate vegetables and fruit as well as pasta and grains. Not usually shy about eating, they will try new items without fear.
House these beauties in a cage large enough for play, wing flapping, and lots of toys. 22" x 24" is adequate cage size. Also consider their very long tails when placing perches. They enjoy swings and shinny objects and will readily chew up and play with toys.
Indian Ring Neck Parakeets can be outgoing and friendly, and can be a choice for a first time bird, or a great bird for families with children. Not an awfully loud bird, they will adapt to apartment or condo living as well.
