I bought a lovely young indian ringneck parrot a few weeks ago. He came with the name Garry. I was told he was DNA tested as a male, But I notice some things he does that my female ringneck used to do. Often he scratches little "nests" into the bottom corner of his cage in the wood shavings, and occasionally when I put my hand over the top of Him he crouches like a female will. Do young ringnecks sometimes do this? Is it just something else all together. He has no ring yet because he's only a few months old I think. We got him from a very trustworthy place, from people we are quite friendly with So I'm sure they didnt lie about his sex. We purposely got a male this time because we had a lot of trouble with our other female crouching and clucking every time we went near her, which kind of made her less enjoyable as a companion pet.
