Jolene Yes I raise Indian ringnecks. They are a great
little bird. They have to be handled every day if not they
get nippy and wild. What color is she? And have these
people handled her much? You might have a challenge on your
hands if she has not been handled much. For talking ability
they are really good talkers. I have a little green one that
I raised from an egg and he goes to work with me every day
and talks as much or more then my grey. He's only 18 months
old and just now starting to get his ring. Once this little
girl gets settled in and bonds to you you'll love the
ringnecks. Best of Luck Donna
