When my new Daddy & mommy were at the pet store they met my old Mommy. she helped them buy Faith (umbrella cockatoo). My new Daddy asked if they were getting any Ringnecks in & she said She had to sell me cause She was moving & could not take me. so My new daddy & Mommy came to my old house & we met. I came right out of my cage & sat on my new Mommys shoulder which is odd because I didnt like to many other people than my Old Mommy. I liked my new daddy too. So they baught me & took me to my new home. I still have some little trust issues, but I am sure I will love my new home..

Hi! My name is Chilie

I am an African Ring-Necked Parakeet from Eastlake, OH.

Greene, chili-pepper

17 years old   M

African Ring-Necked Parakeet

I like anything Daddy & Mommy eat. Peas, peanuts, fresh fruit & veggies.

I like to hang out in my cage or on top of my cage. If I am out of my cage I will fly to my Daddy or Mommy, which ever closer to me, then I like to be on their shoulder.

I am not quite sure of my new home yet. I was with my old Mommy for ten yesrs & now I have A new Daddy & Mommy & sisters. I know they love me but Just dont trust them yet.

I like my new daddy because I fly to him when I am out of my cage, I just am not ready to trust him yet. He scratches my head & tells me I am a handsome boy.

I talk a lot. I ask what are you doin, doin, doin. Whistle and.

God so loved the birds, he invented the trees so we could have a place to rest our wings..

Mommy had excitment yesterday,she took all of us out,only Jango didn't wanna come and was acting somekind of weird,then finaly mommy got him out of the cage,he didn't wanna let her scratch him,made funny noises,she know something isn't right,then she saw it,a bloodfeather was broken and mommy think,it hurted him,so she called the girls from our birdiestore and ask what she can do,they told her,she has to pulled out,it will stop the bleeding,oh boy,mommy tried to hold Jango with a towl,then get on his wing and to the same time pull that feather out,wasn't working,since mommy has just two hands,hihihi,but daddy was on the way home from work,so they did it together and Jango was feeling much better after the feather was gone and thanks god it wasn't bleeding that much,he was then very cuddly after this,so mommy knew,he is feeling better.but oh boy,mommy was really worrie and we too,because we heard Jango screaming and was being very quiet.but Now he is hiself again and talks up a storm,thanks god.so hope you have a great day.hit the votie thingy for you.Beaky kisses BLY

VOTE4U, Hi! You are so pretty, I'm sure you are right an African Ring-neck. I can see now you have the dark feathers under your beak. I think I looked last time half a sleep! Did you say you are than your cousins, IRN's? I think you are bigger than me, how much do you weigh? I weigh 115. My beak is solid redish- orange but the description in BC for IRN's say that male's beaks are red w/ black edge & black bottom beak BUT I'm a male with all redish? I have started to get my red ring, it's pinkish right now, LOL. One of my BBFF's "Hollie" is an African RN(sibs=Big Bird,Summer, Scratch, etc) and I guess you do look more like her. All my BBFF IRN's that are all Lutino yellow like me all have the same redish solid beaks. Maybe that's the difference is the yellow. My Mommy just came home from the Pet shop & said they had a new IRN, all gray & with a red beak w/ black on tip & all black bottom beak, so???? I'm confused!! Bu Mom just checked again on www.indianringneck.com and the big green IRN on the home page has the red/black beak & bottom black beak & black ring on neck, so?? Lots of questions. Hmmmmmm. i think we are all pretty!! Hope you are having a great weekend! Love ya, XXXXOOOO

  story about santa bird
Ever wonder how mysterious red feathers appear in your home on Christmas, or how empty nut shells appear on your floor. Or better yet, how did they get out of their cage on Christmas? Let me tell you: This is the story of a beautiful Scarlet Macaw that lived In the rain forest of Peru a long time ago. Now this beautiful bird was Named Reds. He was different from the other macaws, He always looked after The other birds, if they were weak or small or sick. He took care of everyone else but himself. Every year on Christmas Eve, Santa visited the rain forest And asked each bird what they needed or wanted; Reds made sure the Others got First pick. Santa would then ask Reds what he wanted, but he always Asked for food for the others or medicine for the sick ones. Every year It Was the same scene; he never asked for anything for himself. He was Happy to help the Others and it made him proud to see them all eating treats and playing And singing On Christmas Day. Many years passed by and Reds was getting older. He was starting to Have a touch of Arthritis in his wings. It was harder for him to fly Any distance and his eyesight was not what it used to be, but still Nothing changed, he was just a little slower and more tired, his Feathers not quite as bright, but he continued to help the others. Then one year on Christmas Eve, Santa stopped as usual and once again, He asked Reds What he wanted for Christmas. With great difficulty and pain, he Climbed up on Santa's knee and said, "Can you make me young again?" "You see, I am in pain now and can't get around as easy to check on Everyone." Santa thought about this and turned to Reds, and said, "You know my Friend; This job is getting to be too much for me also, so I was thinking of Taking On an Assistant to deliver to my feathered friends." "Who better than You?" "It doesn't pay a lot but the rewards are the best". "The only Thing is You must leave the forest". "Leave the forest? It is the only place I know. Who will take care of The others if I go with you?" Santa said "Look around, they have each other to depend on. It is time Someone did something for you". Reds talked to the others and they Agreed it was time for him to go, so he climbed on Santa's shoulder and Off they flew that night. Now Reds will never grow any older or have any pain and every year on Christmas Eve, make sure you leave some walnuts out, because, if you Hear tiny claws on your roof, you know it is Santa Bird, come to visit Your feathered friends.beaky kisses and a vote Boba
