At eighteen inches (nine inches of body and nine inches of tail) the Indian Ringneck combines spectacular colors and handsome conformation with intelligence, playfulness, inquisitiveness and interaction. Because the Indian Ringneck has proven itself to be a perfect subject for mutation into a variety of colors, it has, in the past, been largely bred for this purpose. At The Beak, in addition to all the beautiful colors, we want to introduce you to this wonderful bird in its well deserved place as a companion bird.
Not every Ringneck has the potential to be a companion bird, but these shy
Ringnecks are wonderful eaters. Feed them a good quality Cockatiel seed, small hookbill or pellets, plenty of fruits, vegetables and pasta. But don't stop there. Corn on the cob, a spray of millet, almonds, toast with a little peanut butter, they are open to new foods and will try most anything. Be creative when they are young and watch them enjoy.
