History [ edit ]

The ring-necks are part of the Psittacula genus. This is the most widespread group of birds in the wild, found in Africa, Southern Asia, including some Islands of the Indian Ocean.

The ring-necks are becoming increasingly popular to the point of almost being able to compete with budgies as the most kept pet bird. Ring-necks birds are parrots with long tails that live in small flocks in the wild. They seem to pick a region for living and then they move from area to area within that region to forester.

These birds have a long history. Native Indian ring-necks were cherished by the Greeks, while the Romans favored the African ones, which were put in cages made of silver and had personal slaves to look after them.
