Description

These birds are not hand fed or tame...

Description: African Ringnecks Parakeets for sale (Psittacula krameri krameri), look very similar to their cousins the Indian Ringnecks. In fact, they look so similar that many untrained parrot enthusiasts find it difficult to differentiate between the two. Although similar, there are still differences. Indian Ringnecks are a vibrant green whereas the African Ringnecks are lime green. The black ring around the African Ringneck is more prominent than on the Indian Ringneck and much thicker toward the base of the beak. In addition, the African Ringneck’s black ring overshadows the signature rose-ring often seen in the Indian Ringneck. Unlike the Indian Ringneck who has a larger red beak, the African Ringneck has a smaller plum colored beak. The final and more obvious differences are their size and tail length. African Ringneck parrots are about the size of a cockatiel and their tails are much longer in respect to their bodies than the Indian Ringneck. Like the Indian Ringneck, they too have yellow feathers that underline their tails and wings.

Geography: West Africa, Senegal, Mauritania, Uganda and Southern Sudan

Song / Call:  Click to hear African Ring-Necked Parakeet

Size: 9" 

Life Span: 20-28 years

Sexing: Both the male and female African Ringnecked Parakeets are primarily light green with a greenish-yellow hue on the under parts. The male has a black stripe across the mandible that circles the neck and extends to its rose pink collar washed with a light blue. Male African ring-necked parakeets also have a light blue and thin black line across the beak and to the eyes. Females lack the rose pink collar, blue on the neck and the thin black mandible stripe. Instead of a black ring, found on the males, the females have a light green collar and only a hint of the black line leading to the eyes. When young, both male and female are similar and difficult to sex.

DNA Testing 

If there is not a gender option listed for this bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $99 per bird to be tested. If you want us to do our best without DNA testing, just make a note in the comment section of your order letting us know your preference. Please note that if no DNA testing is ordered, we are unable to guarantee a preferred gender but will do our best. See our FAQs for more info.

Temperament: African Ring-Necked Parakeets are affectionate pet birds that need enough attention to keep them from getting bored, but enough independence to spend time alone on a playgym. African Ring Necks make good companions that can be taught to snuggle and perform elaborate tricks. African Ringneck are marvelous creatures that bring a great deal of joy to their households. African Ringnecks are much more docile, less aggressive compared to Indian Ringnecks and much easier to handle. African Ring Necks have a big parrot personality packed in a small body.

Breeding: Breeding African Ring-necked Parakeets can be challenging due to a finicky nature about their nesting locations and inspections. These beautiful pet birds need a bit more privacy as they become scared easily and will flutter around the aviary. The bird’s nesting box should be placed high enough to allow the pair to feel secure about their nesting site and the breeder should have easy access to the box. Whistling before entering the aviary is a good idea as this will alert the parrots upon the breeder’s entry.

African Ring Neck Parakeet Bird

She’s beautiful and arrived last Friday, but she’s having a hard time coming around.

African Ringneck Parakeet

Make sure to do your research on parent raised birds. They are very difficult to handle and tame.
