    Don't waste your money on eggs,they don't ship well.Buy young birds it will be cheaper in the long run.What breeds are you looking for?

    You do realize those are 2 totally different birds?The ringnecks are cannibals and if not given enough room they will kill each other.The red goldens are the exact opposite and even though they do need room also,they very rarely fight unless there are not enough hens for the amount of males.You can run 2 male ringnecks for about 20 or more hens and they make be fine as long as their pen is huge and lots of cover and hiding places.I mean huge as in not less then 50x50.The same for goldens they would also need room for the same numbers.
    Do a little research and be sure of what breed(s) you want to keep.Pay special attention to the birds habits and listen to people that offer you help.
