We will make a concerted effort to help folks connect with breeders who are handfeeding and socializing their ringneck babies.
In this regard, if you are a ringneck breeder and wish me to refer folks to you, please send me your information.
Debby Finn handfed all 54 of our babies last year while I was in chemo. She did a marvelous job. She has purchased half our breeder pairs and, I am sure, will continue to raise beautiful, socialized babies.
She can be reached at:

Enter our site at your own risk and be prepared to fall in love with the most exquisitely beautiful parrot and today’s newest star on the Red Carpet. Perhaps you know this parrot by its endless color mutations, but have you been introduced to it for its engaging personality, ability to talk and aptitude for tricks.
Words of Wisdom:
"Give your new parrot as much time and attention in the beginning as you will be able to give it down the road." This means, dont lavish hours of time and attention on your new companion bird
in the beginning and then when work, chores, family schedules, etc. interfere, decrease the time you spend with your pet. Your
parrot will not understand and will view it as withholding your time.
"A parrot is not a domesticated animal." The vast majority
of our companion birds today are raised in a domestic setting. However, a parrot will always be a wild entity. This means as simply as
keep your birds wings clipped or he WILL fly away to as complicated as your bird always needing his flock (thats you). Most people know that a parrot is a very intelligent creature, but it will serve you and your companion bird well to be aware of his emotional needs as well.
