Breeding

4 to 5, sometimes 6, broad-oval, white eggs.

Indian Ringnecks

The Indian Ringneck is fifteen inches in length. The two central tail feathers give the parrot some extra length. They have graceful and slender proportions which seem in perfect harmony with their vibrant, or pastel colors. Their mutations are simply endless! Green, Lutino, Blue, Albino, Lacewing, Pastels and Pieds. The most prominent feature I like of the Ringneck is their lovely long tail. If spread out widely, the Ringneck’s tail is fascinating.

The Indian Ringneck belongs to a family of parrots called the Asiatic Parrots, with the subspecies name of
Psittacula Krameri Mannelensis. Commonly described as the ‘Gems of the Rainforest’ these parrots are
bred in various brilliant mutations. The Indian Ringnecks are considered some of the best talkers! They are found primarily in India, Burma, and parts of Central and North Eastern Africa. The first Lutino (yellow bird) was produced 1934.
The Asiatic Parrots are composed of various other species apart from Indian Ringnecks. Among these are Alexandrines,
Moustached Parrots, Derbyans, Plum-heads, Blossom-heads, and many more. They feed mainly on seeds, fruits, and berries.

The pink area is inhabited by Indian Ringnecks

4 to 5, sometimes 6, broad-oval, white eggs.

Once Ringneck parrots reach puberty, males have black rings with a pink patch around their necks, females lack this ring. In some mutations, such as the lutino, this ring will be pink, with a white patch, the female still lacks the ring;

Females may also have a “shadow” ring, which is a very faint gray ring.

Ringnecks grow their rings at around 1-3 years. In babies, the pupil is pure black without the white iris, they have a darker beak and shorter tails.

Around 30-40 years. It all depends on a healthy lifestyle.

Their wings are clipped. We clip both wings (all primaries, all insides). Kiki and Zazu are also tame, and never attempt to fly away.

An Indian Ringneck Parrot

Categories: Species, Terminology

They are really loud, especially for most parrots their size. You can hear Kiki a few blocks away down the street when she’s going off.

Ringnecks have a loud, sharp, piercing call. Kiki has quite a variety of sounds she makes. If I am near her, she usually makes her sweet “baby” noises. Handreared birds tend to make more of these noises among humans, and it’s really sweet. It’s a kind of mumbling noise. Then she has her loud call… like all parrots do, which is not pleasant. It’s a series of constant sharp, of very brief intervals, repetitive calls.
