Get one bird, tame and train him and care for him until he fully trusts you which takes a while with birds. If you get two, you will have lots of problems taming and training because birds bond with each other and have less need for you as a friend.When you DO get another bird, make sure it has its own cage as you should never put strange birds in same cage.

As Tracie said, do not get any birds under 4-5 months old or older because baby birds revert back to needing to be handfed when moved, and if you have not learned this skill, they can die from lack of proper nutrition. Unethical breeders are the only ones who sell babies too young without spending time with new caretakers showing them how to and what to feed their babies. I used to work in a bird store in Oregon, and part of the going home process for babise was me showing prospective parents all the ins and outs of handfeeding. These people would come by either before or after work when I was feeding over 30 babies, and after being shown how to do it a few times, would help me out by feeding their bird and possibly the rest of same species babies.

Stay away from unweaned or freshly weaned birds because they are not ready to go into the stress of a new home situation. For those people who have been previously "trained" in how to handfeed properly, babies will be fine. Beware of the breeder or pet shop that wants to shove off young birds onto you without showing or telling you anything, because these people do not care about the birds or you, just getting the money.

Buying indian ringneck parrots
by: Tracie

If you purchase 2 birds, make sure they are the same gender, so you don't have breeding problems. Also, make sure the breeder has taken them to an avian vet to make sure they are healthy. Do NOT purchase unweaned birds.

If someone is selling birds that are not weaned, then they probably do not taking care of their birds and just breed so they can make money quick. They know that the birds may die after you get them, and they just don't care.
