Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Benton, AR

I wanted a bird really bad, so I did countless hours of internet research. I decided that an Indian Ringneck would be the best bird for me, so I went to the pet store and asked them if they could look for one for me. Just a few days later Eco was found. The previous owner didn't pay much attention to him, and decided to give him up. He came home with me on April 25, 2009 and has loved his life ever since..

Hi! My name is Eco

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Benton, AR.

Nope, he's just Eco.

6 years old   M

Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet

Sunflower seeds, oranges, and Romaine lettuce.

On the couch, on his playtop, and on mommy's shoulder.

Wood in any form that he can't chew on and his treat bowl being empty.

Sarah always gives me treats and teaches me new tricks. She lets me out when I want and never leaves me alone for too long.

He dunks his food in water, but only the white, red and blue pellets..

Thanks for the vote, and here's another vote for you. I like to dunk food into my water bowl, too. It's good exercise for mom. She has to walk back and forth changing my water bowl all day. From, Dandy

  Hi from Pickle
Hi, Eco! Mommy said to thank you for stopping by my page. She also said to say that she LOVES IRNs :)

I'm a little bit bigger than a peach-faced lovebird (maybe an inch or so longer) but I weigh about the same (50 grams). Golden-winged parakeets like me aren't very common as pets but other Brotogeris parakeets, like canary-wings and white-wings, are easier to find.

Mommy hopes that I'll be with her for a VERY long time and from what she's read, that could be 20 years... hopefully more!

Here's a vote for you :)

Come visit me, Pickle (golden-winged parakeet).

  HI ECO
Thanks for liking my avatar!!! i like yours to!! It looks just like you!!
Well I have to tell you that I didn't do my own avatar! A friend of mine on here did it. Do you know Poirot and Pringle? Poirot is an african grey and Pringle is a cockatiel. Their mommy did it for me and she did Bobo's to. She does an awesome job on them!! If you don't know them, you should look them up and check their avatars out..

Well I better get to bed. thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll stop by again.

Have a great day and don't worry, your mom will let you go outside eventually! She just doesn't want you to fly away! Your to handsome! Are your wings trimmed? Mine are. My mom doesn't want me to fly away either..

Love,
Rocky xoxoxoxo V4U

  Hi Eco
Thanks for the compliment. Mom likes it when I wave at her and thought everyone else would like it too. hehehe She likes to tell the story of when the policeman was sitting next to us at a light and every time he looked over (even trying to with just his eyes) I'd wave at him. Last we saw of him he was laughing. I had lots of fun too.
Mom and the lady who took Mina think that the personalities clashed. Ah well, can't please everyone all the time. Mina is very happy and getting LOTS of attention from 4 or more people every day.
Won't be on for a while. Mom's going on vacation with dad and we'll be staying with Parrot Connection. Maybe those IRNs will be there again this year. Gotta fly v4u

  Hi Eco
Sly here. We miss Mina too. But last we heard she's happy. Still don't know if she's a breeder...she acted like she wanted to be one. Always laying eggs and sitting on them. She wanted another clutch right before she left and that is probably why she was so mean to mom. But mom has lots of scars to show how much she loved Mina.
Now we have a new addition to the flock. Her name is Levalla and she's a budgie. She's not as pretty as Mina, but she's cute. Fly by and meet her. v4u

I see... were you a handfeed baby? I know that your mom wasnt your first owner, maybe that's why you are a little stubborn.

My moms wants a bird like you, but she wants to know the negatives of your character. Can you ask your mom? Are you really loud? Are you demanding? My mom work all day and she is with us only some minutes at morning and at the night.

  Hi Eco
Mina here. HAHAHA Yeah, Kiwi is real good about "marking" mom. Well, he thinks humans are official poo posts anyway. But I do know what you mean about having mom getting funny looks. Our friend,Mark, at Parrot Connection says you can tell a true bird owner by the amount of poo on the back of their shirt. How true. Mom was in line one day and the person in front of her had some dry on her shirt and mom just said, you must have birds. The lady said yes how could you tell? Mom said that the lady turned all shades of red. Mom then told her what Mark said and they had a good laugh. Gotta love 'em.
Well, mom's trying to catch up on our blogs since this week was so cockeyed. Fly by when you can. v4u

  Hi Eco
Mina here. Yeah, you are a pretty one. And no matter what we feathered ones grow on them. hahaha Oh, let me tell you the funnest thing to do. When you're on moms shoulder start chewing! My mom hardly has any shirt that isn't holey. One time I had really gotten to this shirt and mom forgot to change shirts before going to the store. Oh, boy, that was a good one, and the cashier looked at her real funny. Mom checked her shoulder and just said, "I have parrots" Then they both started laughing.Now mom checks her shirts for holes and poop before she ever leaves the house. hahaha. And our beaks poke such lovely holes too. My friend Louie-IRN male--does the same with his mom too.
uhoh here comes mom. I have to send this before she sees me telling on her. v4u
