I'm getting 4 baby Indian Ringnecks

Hi guys, hope everyone's well and had a nice new year.

A breeder I know has to go into Hospital this week and have an operation on his arm - he has 4 baby Indian Ringnecks that are feathered and are in the nest at the moment and he needs to give them to someone to hand-feed them and hand-raise them so I told him I'll do it!

I'm actually buying the 4 babies from him, so they're mine, but I will be making sure they go to the best of homes.. and I have to resist keeping them all.


Also, last night, the breeder emailed me and said he's going to check if he has another tame baby IRN & if he does; he'll give it to me for free, so I *might* be getting 5 now!

He's going to drop the babies off here (at my house) tomorrow so photos to come.. LOTS of them.

Wow! Lots of work for you! Is your new little ringneck still handfeeding too? Good luck finding them all homes!

Yup, it'll be a hand-full but I really enjoy doing it so I don't mind.

Keiba's not taking any more hand-feedings, he's been off them for a few months now - he eats everything & anything.

Thank you.

I might be getting 7 now, don't know for sure, but there's 3 pure blue baby Indian Ringnecks that have been plucked by their mother and need to be hand-raised (they're eating seeds, pellets, veggies etc) so I just need to handle them for a while, and tame them down then give them to good homes.

I'm so jealous. I would love to handraise baby ringnecks.

Can't wait for the pics, if you have enough time to post any because you're going to have your hands full if you get 7 of them!!!
