Blue Indian Ringneck Parakeets: 

Common Names:

Indian Ringneck Parakeet, Indian Ringneck Parrot, Rose-Ringed Parrot

Scientific Name:

Psittacula krameri manillensis

Origin:

India, Asia

Size:

Medium, about 16 inches in length including the tail feathers.

Average Lifespan:

Between 25 to 30 years, although instances of Ringnecks living past the age of fifty have been authenticated.

History:

Indian Ringneck Parakeets have been kept in captivity from as early as 200 B.C. In their home country of India, these parakeets were regarded as sacred beings when religious leaders began to recognize their ability to clearly mimic human language. Highly regarded by wealthy Indian royals, Ringneck Parrots were kept in decorative cages and were admired for their colors and charming dispositions. In the 1920's, however, aviculturists began breeding captive Ringnecks, and with the advent of different color mutations, the popularity of the bird began to explode. Now widely available in the pet trade, Indian Ringneck Parakeets continue to gain increasing popularity as pets.Their relatively small size and beautiful markings help to make the Ringneck a good choice for many bird owners. With adequate attention, handling, and love, an Indian Ringneck Parakeet can quickly become a beloved companion and family member.

Colors:

Wild Indian Parakeets are usually green with the exception of turquoise blue on their tail feathers, and males have black and rose colored rings around their necks. Indian Parakeet Ringnecks are now available in shades ranging from bright yellows (Lutino), greens and blues to albinos due to color mutations. Like a few other bird species, they are known as dimorphic, meaning that a bird's sex can be determined by its colors and markings.

Sexing

Males sport deep red beaks, black facial markings, and three bands or color around their necks. Females, while still beautiful, lack the facial and collar bands, although some do display a slight darkening of color around their necks. 

Adult parakeets are easily sexed as the black and pink neck ring of cocks is absent in hens. However adult plumage is not attained until the third year, though some cocks may show slight traces of the black and pink at a year old. In cocks of the blue variety, the pink ring of the wild type is replaced by white. In the Lutino, the pink neck ring is retained but the black moustache markings of the wild type are replaced by white.

Temperament:

Indian Ringnecks are curious, active, and playful parakeets, who may get bored easily if left alone. Because these ring-necked parakeets have powerful jaws, providing interesting toys and cage accessories for these playful parakeets is beneficial. While they can be a little "nippy" and go through a "bluffing" stage in their adolescence, pet parakeets are great companion pets.  

Blue Indian Parakeets are smart birds with sweet and charming personalities and they are highly desired amongst bird enthusiasts. They have a very high-pitched yet sweet little voice. These parakeets do enjoy daily attention and are fantastic "talkers".

Diet: Your ring-necked parakeet will love a diet of our own special house blend of healthy and nutritious Parakeet Seed, as well as our Oat GroatsBlack-Oiled Sunflower Seeds, and juicy fruit treats such as apples, berries, grapes and melons.  

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
