Fly high Baby blue! I love you
hello there! I currently am fostering two female Indian ringnecks. I am wondering if anyone has some tips 😅 i got them just yesterday but would like to start out on a good note. I’m not new to birds, i have 3 budgies of my own. I have never owned an IRN and wanted to start with fostering for these reasons :
1) I don’t know if they are the right fit for us
2) they are loud and i don’t know if i could tolerate it long term (we will find out)
3) i don’t support buying birds 😝
4) i want to do something good for the community
5) i love birds!

So any taming tips and stuff like enriching their life and how to make them the most adoptable I would love!

here is some about them, they came from a cruelty, hoarding and neglect case. they are TERRIFIED of humans, but i got one to eat some spray millet this morning. They bicker a lot so i’m contacting the place to see if that is an issue and if we need to find a solution. they are somewhat quiet compared to the other IRNs i saw there, but way louder than my budgies so on a scale from 1 -cockatoo i would say a 4.

anyways any and ALL advice is wanted 😅

Update!

Asteria has decided that it's fun to throw carrots at the dogs :ROFLMAO:, doggie may lose a few brain cells more, but not much can happen through the cage bars lol.

They both have a few applications pending, but Alaqua is VERY picky (as they should be) with bird adoptions. I doubt they will go through.

A crossover Quaker Scuti (F), A Sun conure named AC, A Cinnamon Green Cheek conure Kent, and 6 budgies, Scuti Jr. (f), yellow (m), clark Jr. (m), Dot (f), Zebra(f), Machine (m).
Sounds like a good start!

Those dowels were in the travel cage. that was too small for her to be kept in.

on a rather very sad note, my budgie baby Bluberry died today. She was only 9.
