Chirper : Rose Ring Neck Parrot

Rose Ring neck Parrot are intelligent parrots and do make great pets. They learn concepts quickly and love to show off. Along with being intelligent, they are great at talking. Quaker Parrots are known for their talking ability; however, an Rose Ring Neck Parrot can speak with clarity that's phenomenal.

These birds are truly masters at talking for their size and can easily compete with Quakers, Grays, and Amazons. With adequate attention, handling, and love, an Rose Ring Neck Parrot can quickly become a beloved companion and family member.

The Rose Ring Neck parrot originates from India. These birds are elegant, beautiful and make good pets for those willing to provide ongoing obedience training. If not given sufficient attention, the Rose Ring Neck Parrot may become unfriendly and disobedient. In order to maintain their friendly personalities and tameness, regular handling and socialisation are a must for these birds. The plumage of the Rose Ring Neck Parrot is apple green, although mutations in a range of other colours also exist. This includes buttercup yellow and the increasingly popular powder blue.

The Rose-Ringed Parakeet or Indian Ringneck is classified as a smaller parrot known as a parakeet. These birds have a hooked beak, a long tail, and are smaller in size compared to most parrots. These parrots are about 16 inches in length and they have a stealthy appearance that sets them apart from most exotic birds.

Rose Ring Neck Parrots are available in shades ranging from bright yellows, greens, and blues, to albinos. 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. 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 barely slight darkening of color around their necks.
