    Ring-necked parakeet, thoughts.

    I got a oportunity to get one of these beautiful birds. Really exited about her coming to her new home. But also scared at the same time, have look all the information about these birds so far.
    Worried since i have couple budgies. Im home alot "these times" thought so, i got time to give good care and company.
    I had budgies and cockatiels since i were 8 years old, but these birds are somehow bigger and "harder" than a cockatiel for example.

    Hi, Johanna, and welcome to the forum, and also your flock. I think Ring Necks are very unique and beautiful.

    Thank you. Tomorrow going to see more of that bird since shes yet underage to come to new home. Got some weeks to get prepared with my new cage setups. Have been so quiet since my old tiel passed, nice to get some happy bird screams back to my place again.

    We will watch for the wonderful news of bringing her home!!! I know for sure I would be lost without having birds in my home. I've had both budgies and cockatiels over many years, and to me there is nothing oke the sounds of happy birds in our homes.

    Still "long time" to wait 3 weeks. Really dont know how i manage to wait.
    Atleast i have time to prepare my cages(lot of moving and dusting to do) and house in general for that kinda bird.
    Dont want my little son to be able to reach the cage at any point. Since these birds bite and hard.
    And fun to think that they can live upto 30-40 years at best, my son will be like 30 years old by then, now hes just 2 years.

    I have a feeling your son and your new bird will be best friends for life. We brought Boomer home when my daughter was 5 years old and he sadly died when she just graduated from high school and they were best friends his entire life. Boomer adored her and also her friends. He taught my daughter how to respect animals and to be very gentle, to be very careful and most importantly to truly have a animal who loved her more then life itself. He is in her shirt in my avatar here and that was his place all his life. I think your new ringneck will teach your son many lessons in life just like Boomer taught daughter. You are smart to have the bird somewhere your son cannot get bitten because them beaks can really hurt a little hand. I am so excited for you to get such a smart and amazing bird.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.
