Kind of bird

It sounds like you either have an indian ringneck parakeet OR an alexandrian parakeet. If you could post a picture it would help.

Possibly a Rose-ringed Parakeet?

I believe you are describing an Rose-ringed Parakeet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rose-ringed_Parakeet

Since your don't know what kind of bird you have, I assume you don't know how to care for the bird either. Please read the health and training articles on our Parrot Training page for more information. Your bird should be eating mostly pellets to stay healthy. Please start with our Switching Birds To Pellets article.
