In today's segment, Deborah O'Shell, from Blair County Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, brings in Indian Ringneck Parakeets. The Indian Ringneck Parakeet is is typically green, but other colors exist including yellow, albino, and blue. On average, the Indian Ringneck Parakeet has a life expectancy of 25 years. If you are the owner of an Indian Ringneck Parakeet, keep in mind that they need to be fed a variety of foods, including pellet food, green veggies, orange veggies, and fruit.
Indian Ringneck Parakeet's make for exciting pets because they enjoy the spotlight. They are highly intelligent and enjoy talking, whistling, and doing tricks in a "show-off" manner. These parakeets are popular pets, but it takes a type of person to be a good owner. If you are thinking about buying an Indian Ringneck Parakeet you must be tolerable of noise and have plenty of time on your hands to show the bird. Prices of this species of bird range from $100-$10,000.
