First of all both birds need to be examined and checked over by an Avian (bird) Vet in your driving area. Sick birds produce sick babies that die shortly after being hatched.

DO NOT PUT THESE TWO BIRDS TOGETHER AGAIN FOR ANY REASON. Parrots choose their mates in the wild, and do not like our choices sometimes. Also, if new bird has recently arrived, she is not even comfortable in new home yet, much less ready to breed. Birds ARE NOT little machines that will do what we want when we want them to do it, so slow down and understand that you are working with living creatures here who have likes and dislikes and needs.

YOU NEED TO DO A LOT OF STUDY ABOUT THE RINGNECKS BEFORE EVEN THINKING OF BREEDING. You have to know everything there is to know about the birds before trying to breed them, and they will need a very large cage made for breeding birds. These cost quite a lot of money, so you may wish to forget about breeding until you know what you are doing and have the money to do it correctly.

You can find information on the internet about your birds and also get yourself some books as well. You have to know how to handfeed baby birds which has to be learned by watching a breeder do it. Breeding birds is very complicated and takes a long time to learn all about it.

For now, take your birds to an Avian Vet to make sure they are healthy. Feed them organic pellets and organic fruit and veggies. Tracie sells the organic pellets on this site.

You have a LONG WAY TO GO before you are anywhere near ready to breed any kind of bird, so get busy learning and studying and taking care of the birds you have. Taking care of birds properly takes a long time to learn, and is enjoyable. If you are serious about taking good care of your birds, get busy learning and studying until you know all you need to know to keep them happy and healthy. Feeding is one of the most important aspects of having birds, so feed them well and learn, learn, learn. RELAX AND ENJOY WATCHING AND LEARNING FROM YOUR BIRDS AS THEY HAVE MUCH TO TEACH YOU...
