    My cuties are 2 years old and the male has just developed his ring. They are real gorgeous. Was wondering what age span they might have.

    Thanks Borderkelpie,

    Mine aren't doves, they are a type of parrakeet. Nice links.

    Anyone?

    Hi countrygirl1,
    Do Asian ring-necked parrakeets make good pets ???

    Are they too nervous / flighty ???

    Did your ring-necked parrakeet bites your fingers or hand when you held the parrakeet upside down, bare-handed ???

    Do Asian ring-necked parrakeets have intelligence ???

    Clinton.

    Hi Clinton,
    Indian ringnecks make excellent pets. We hand raised ours from 18 day old chicks . That seems to be the best way to ensure that they will be tame with you and not nervous. i find your next question somewhat unusual! I have never held them upside down!! They are extremely intelligent birds and learn very quickly. Our male is a great talker and he has picked up my laugh.

    I am finding the indian ringneck forum very informative and there is some excellent info on there. Have a browse on there. There are loads of pics too.

    Good luck
