Lightbulb Indian Ringneck...Maybe?

So as you many of have helped me, I decided on a Sennie But I have come across one other species I have fallen in love with. I have spent time with both now, and Love both. The second is an Indian Ringneck. I was wondering how these will do in an apartment compared to a Sennie? Will it be too loud? Is there any information they can give me? I know each bird will be different, but anything, stories or what youve heard, will help me

Thanks Ahead of time!!!

From what I have heard about IRNs is they are not cuddly.

So obviously no, I should not get one, Because I would never want to have to rehome a bird. Man! Maybe later on in life....Dream Bird I guess...Currently a IRN now haha

My ringneck only kicked off on her health checks, other than that she was quiet. She also wasn't hand take but we enjoyed each others company. I have recently fallen in love with Alexandrine parakeets an when the bird room is fixed up I intend on getting one (or two)

IRNs can make great pets, and are very intelligent and elegant. I think they may be too loud for an apartment, but you may check with your landlord just to be sure. Good luck
