Indian Ringneck Breeding:

Ideally, the Ringnecks should be housed as single pairs in open flights approximately 12 feet long by 6 feet high, with about 1/4 covered. In the wild, they breed in hollow logs, however we have been successful with a wooden breeder box 12 x 12 x 15 inches high which is hung vertically at the back of their breeding cage. While we prepared the box with 1 inch of pine and 1/2" of cedar shavings, the hen removed all of the breeding material, and two weeks before the first clutch was laid, the male was seen busily re-lining the box with his own mixture of regurged feathers and newspaper.

Don't forget to visit collection of great Birds related websites.

The female lays 5 to 7 eggs in a clutch. If she is laying eggs for the first time then the eggs may be 2 or 3. In this case do not worry as next time she will lays a good number of eggs. The incubation takes 21 days starting from the day when the hen starts to incubate the eggs properly.

The male adeptly removed cracked egges from the box. Incubation takes 21-24 days and then the chicks will stay with the parents for 10 days before being pulled and hand fed. (In nature, the young spend 7 weeks in the nest). About the only way you can identify the difference between a fledgling and the adult is the fact that the young have a shorter tail than their parents, but the bodies are approximately the same size as a mature bird at this age. That all evens out within a couple of months when it becomes hard to distinguish them from the mature female. Again, it takes about two years to see the feathered ring, if you are viewing a male.
