The Indian-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the ring-necked parakeet, is a gregarious tropical Afro-Asian parakeet species. As pets, the would rather step up and sit on your shoulder than be cuddled. They can talk, have a low noise level, and come in many colors. Some of the colors we breed are blue, cinnamon blue, grey, violet, cinnamon violet and creamino.
The Indian-ringed parakeet is sexually dimorphic. The adult male sports a red or black neck-ring and the hen and immature birds of both sexes either show no neck rings, or display shadow-like pale to dark grey neck rings. Indian rose-ringed parakeets measure on average 16 inches in length including the tail feathers, a large portion of their total length.
