Eng. Rose ringed Parakeet, Blue Ring necked parakeet
Lat. Psittacula Krameri
ORIGIN: Western Africa, Guinea, Senegal and southern Mauritania. Uganda
from the east to the west and southern Sudan.
APPEARENCE: According to their size of 40cm (16 in), they
belong to the middle group of medium-sized parrots. Their basic
color is green, the abdomen and under-wing feathers are yellow-green.
The neck and back of the head are bluish. The front part under the
bill is black and it ties with a black necklace around the neck.
The necklace has thin pinkish edges. The lower part of the tail
is olive-yellow while the middle-sized feathers on the edges are
reddish. The periophthalamic ring is yellowish-white. The feet are
green-grey. The sex in young parrots is not distinguishable. After
18 months males get a necklace around the neck which is in the beginning
pale and unclear. Females do not have a necklace, the back of the
head is washed blue, the body is of smaller size and the medium
tail feathers are shorter.

KEEPING AND CARE of Rose Ringed Parakeet: The socialization and taming take a lot of time and are not
successful with older birds. Such older birds are distrustful and
timid. The best way to have a calm and tamed bird is to feed it
by hand or to get as young a bird as possible. One has to pay a
lot of attention to this bird so as to have a perfect pet. They
belong to a medium-voiced class of parrots and they produce sounds
when they are upset or frightened. The cage for these parrots has
to be of medium size so the bird may feel comfortable. It must be
placed in a calm place away from draught winds. The taming has to
be gradual without rushing. The bird must not be disturbed in the
first days of adaptation so it can adapt to the new surroundings
and people. After a few days of adaptation, one can approach the
bird slowly in order for the bird to gain confidence. One may try
to offer sweets from the hand and while doing this, be patient until
the bird overcomes its fear. When it overcomes its fear and gains
trust, taming will be easy. Their feathers should be sprinkled with
water in order to keep its beauty and shine.

DIET: As with other middle-sized parrots, speckled sunflower is the main
component in the mixture consisting of millet seeds, canary grass
seeds, shelled oats, buckweat, saffron, hemp, sorghum, flax and
black seeds. Minerals such as chopped mussels, sand, and cuttle-bone
have to always be available to have a healthy bird. Fruit and vegetables
as a main source of vitamins also have to be included in the menu.
Apples, grapes, bananas, carrots, blade and chicory and their combinations
offer the bird a special dose of vitamins.
BREEDING Rose Ringed Parakeet: Their breeding is not a problem. During
the breeding period, the pairs can be separated if they become more
aggressive than usual. If provided with a big enough space, these
parrots can be kept in pairs with enough number of nests for each
pair to choose a nest. The aviary for one pair should be of 2-3
m (78-118 in) in length, 2 m (78 in) in height and 0.70–1
m (28-40 in) in width.
The inside has to be be filled with branches so the birds can stand
somewhere and must have enough space for flying. At the top of the
quiet part of the aviary, one can put a nest of 30-35 cm (12-14
in) in height and length 40-60 cm (16-24 in) in width so as not
to upset the birds during breeding season.
Nest box for rose ringed parakeet.
On the bottom of the nest one can
put large wood chips. Breeding season in closed areas begins in
December and in outer areas in February. The female clutches 3-5
eggs. Incubation lasts 23 days. After 7 days, the completely feathered
young birds come out of the nest and become independent 14 days
after leaving the nest. If the first breeding is successful, they
breed once more. Males are mature by 18 months but are usually 3
years old when they first breed.
FACTS: Rose Ringed Parakeets live about 20 years although there are cases
where they have lived 40 years or more.
They are of various color, one-colored and speckled mutation.
The most common colors are yellow, blue, olive, cinnamon, lutino,white,
blue-white, yellow-green, and white-yellow.
There are a lot of other variations and mutations.
In the UK, there are cases where birds have escaped from their owners
by chance and they have adapted. Thus it is known that they can
freely and successfully breed in the wild.
