Indian Ringneck breeder REPUTABLE

The breeder I got Gollum from has IRN on eggs but this is her first clutch and she is not sure they will produce babies. While I am waiting to find out, I have been looking to see other options, just in case. There are none locally. I have been on birdbreeder.com and there are lots of IRN available. Having a bird shipped is scary. There are a few that seem to have actual stores. I am not sure how safe that is....
Anyhow, if anyone knows of a good, reputable IRN breeder that does ship, please let me know. You can always PM me as well

I am looking for a Lutino or one that falls in the blue or violet color family.

Re: Indian Ringneck breeder REPUTABLE

Hmm, IRNs are a very unique species, is Gollum your first bird? I dont suggest adding a second bird of a completely different species before your first bird hits sexual maturity and all the issues that come with that.

Re: Indian Ringneck breeder REPUTABLE

I love indian ringnecks very much. and I am NOT saying you shouldnt get one However, in my experience (many, many times, I would say 9 times out of 10) getting a second parrot, especially one of a vastly different temperament type, before the first one reaches sexual maturity, leads to big problems. Im not saying dont get your 5th bird until the 4th one is mature, I'm saying deal with ONE BIRD maturing before adding more. I know you will probably ignore this advice, most people do, MBS and all... but I'm serious. I'm not pulling this out of the air. Most baby birds are super sweet until they hit puberty and then all hell breaks loose. Check Craigslist and you will see MOST of the birds for sale are just hitting that stage. It isnt a joke. Do you see how many threads are on here that basically say "My bird used to be sweet and now he is evil"? Sexual maturity. My understanding is that in Senegals that is about 3 years old. The wise thing to do is to wait until you have successfully weathered one "teenage" bird, especially because IRNs dont wait for puberty to become a huge handful.

Im not trying to be mean or harsh, just realistic. I know most people ignore this type of advice, but then again most people get into birds and then get out a few years later... hhhmm... I wonder why....

I JUST helped a woman rehome 12 birds after she ignored advice similar to this. It was frustrating and saddening. Birds are sooooo amazing, we all want to rush out and get the next one, they are addictive, like a drug. a cute, smart, happy drug. But rushing it doesnt help anyone.

Im not going to berate you if you get one, or say mean things, I just feel that I owe it to your birds to say this. And, since most people ignore this advice, I will tell you, message the user SunsetChaser. She breeds IRNs.

I don't want to burst your bubble, but be really careful adding another bird with a sennie.. Sennie's tend to be very jealous birds. Rio almost killed my parrotlet. They were he same age, born in the same month even. I got Kiwi first at 8 weeks, then 2 months later I got my Senegal. They were both 4 month old, and hated each other from day 1. Of course a plet is no match for a Senegal and an Irn is larger then a Senegal, but fighting is fighting. Mine got into it only 3 times in 2 years, the last incident being the worst. It is not a pleasant thing to see, and breaking it up is very difficult with two stubborn birds. So really do you research, be well informed before you decided adding another bird.

Re: Indian Ringneck breeder REPUTABLE

I know nothing but IRNs but I will agree that getting two babies might prove impossible.

Maybe if you are really set on a second bird NOW, look into a rehome. One already past sexual maturity that you will know what you're getting in to.

I have bird experience, and I have one young bird and one 5 year old amazon. I think I am not out of the woods with her yet, but her temperament is pretty even.
I wouldn't suggest two young birds at the same time for someone that doesn't have experience though. Just my two cents. It'll be frustrating
And possibly heartbreaking.

Actually I've heard that a lot about sennies. They basically don't seem to be very social.

Be prepared to have to always have separate out of cage time. Never allowing them out at the same time and not allowing one to climb on another's cage.

A Senegal may do better with a larger bird, but they will rule the roost with their sennie-tude. Even experience bird trainers like Michael (the parrot wizzard) has his handsful with his Senegal, Cape, and his Mac. he does well with them all, but he is very experienced. For an inexperienced person, you maybe asking for trouble.
