There are some people on here that have Indian Ringnecks, so you should get some good information on them. I was under the impression that only the males had that black ring around their necks though. I don't know if it differs by mutation/species though. Welcome to the forum!

As the birds get older the ring will start to show, probably on their next moult

Welcome to our forum!
If you want to know the gender you have to wait until they are adults. Then you see if they get a ring at their necks or not.

We would love to see pics! Yeah they don't get their ring sometimes until they are 2 years old.
