Why did you choose an IRN

There is an IRN being rehomed. I had never considered an IRN before and was wondering why/how all of you decided on IRN?
Thank you

Re: Why did you choose an IRN

Read this. Silversage says you rarely ever find a tame ringneck being re-home. If they have reverted back to being a wild bird, very difficult to re tame

Re: Why did you choose an IRN

My mum brought ours home because an old man begged her to buy him from him, so I didn't actually choose to have an IRN at that time at all, I was just living with my mum when she as someone who should never have one brought him home. By the time I left, she was desperate to get him out of her house and we were closely bonded, so naturally I rushed to find us somewhere before it was too late and she'd give him to an aviary. However, by amazing coincidence, before all this happened I was already a parrot obsessive and had decided that IRN was the species I would look for whenever I eventually sought a new parrot to adopt, so I can still answer this question as if it was my idea to get him.

What attracted me initially was what cute talkers the talkers are; I loved watching them on YouTube. What made me think they'd also be a good lifestyle fit for me, were their size (not so small that you can't easily spot exactly where the poops are in a room you've left them in, not so big that I couldn't afford a home big enough for them to fly vigorous laps and somersaults around), and their ability to happily amuse themselves while you're at work as long as you don't cage them, because I hope to never live with another person so velcro-species who need attention all day are a huge no-no.

Re: Why did you choose an IRN

My wife fell in love with them immediately upon discovering the species. She didn't freak when I got my cockatiel, so a few days later I paid cash for a pair of hand fed weanlings, the female I had a picture sent from the breeder at three weeks, and the male was the only one left, they were hatched a week and a half apart. They made a perfect gift, but they have seemingly picked me as their human. As far as adopting a grown IRN, i have met a few older ones, and they are nothing like a hand fed baby, but even my female will still bite the crap out of you if she doesn't want to step up or you "make" her do something she doesn't want to do, everything about them is unique.

Re: Why did you choose an IRN

Thank you for your replies. The IRN I am considering had been handfed, is 4 years old and totally tame and socialized.

So smerft85 your wife still doesn’t have her “own” bird?

Thank you Aspie for sharing your reasoning with me. It is much how I feel. I love the conures but I think one in your face cuddling bird is more then enough. I can’t figure out my reluctance, other then there is more negative comments about the IRN then other bird types.

That would be her red lored amazon, myles. The other 10 gravitate towards me.
