Welcome to the forum. Indian Ringnecks are beautiful, intelligent birds (if you can tolerate their natural, high pitched voice ) I owned a green female for about 20 yrs and a lutino female for a less time (I had to rehome her to someone who had an aviary because my living situation changed and I had to bring her into a cage, which she didn't enjoy). The green one was tame, but even tame birds are not "cuddly". They especially don't like to be pet while ruffling their feathers and my girl greatly enjoyed being stroked in the direction of the feathers.

Can't wait to see pictures of her.

Welcome to our forum!
IRNs are so cute. We have many wild living IRNs in Duesseldorf. I love them.

Welcome to the forum, cannot wait to see pics of your IRN.
We inherited a lutino female, She's been rehomed from an elderly lady who wasn't able to look after her anymore.
Yes IRN have a high pitched voice when screaming, especially when they want your attention. I love their whistling though and their chattering, they are cute.

I don't agree with NOT being cuddly though. I believe it is a personality issue. In the meantime our Tilly developed to be the most cuddliest birdie, wants to be scritched, cuddled, stroked against and with direction of feathers almost 24/7 also when ruffling and preening. She was cackling that loud that my hubby was wondering what I was doing to her, ROFLMAO.....

Have fun, enjoy your new companion and keep us updated.

My bird liked to be stroke....and I forgot about the cackling/clucking , but she didn't want the feathers of her back and feathers fluffed the wrong way and she never snuggled up against me. Also, as a species, they tend not to be snuggly/cuddly but I don't mean to imply that they don't enjoy being pet.

LOL, yes our Tilly can be a real cuddle bug and she loves the feathers ruffled on her back, cheeks, head, throat, chest, tummy... forwards and backwards she likes to sit on my chest and being stroked, and last Sunday arvo we both had a snooze in the recliner chair "sleeping" TV ( not watching, haha ) my head leaned towards her and she had her head closely to my cheek so I could feel her little eye twitching ( she must have had a dream, she woke me up, LOL )
