I have been looking for an exact or a picture very similar to this parrot but without success. Can you tell me what breed this parrot is? We had him for 8 years now. We had him since he was a baby parrot.

If you google "Psittacula derbiana" you will find lots of information. Your bird (the bird in the photo) is a female. Males have coral beaks when they are 2 years old.

He appears to be one of the Indian Ringneck parrots. They are actually the Asian version of a Parakeet with the Conures being the Central/South American Parakeets.

His picture is not as clear as it would be if taken with him out of his cage. His beak looks like it may be overgrown, and an Avian (bird) vet is the ONLY PERSON THAT CAN TRIM BEAKS as birds can bleed out through their beak if anyone except an Avian Vet trims them. Feeding organic pellets and giving him lots of safe wood toys will help keep the beak naturally trimmed. When beak gets a big, sharp point on it, it could break off and the bird bleed to death, so you need to find an Avian Vet in your driving area.

Thanks for writing,
