Ringnecks may stop talking

This happens sometimes, but most often happens if you purchase the opposite sex. If you have both bird sexed so that they will not become a "pair" then it is more likely that they will continue to like you even though they may bond.

You do realize you have to keep the new bird in a separate cage until the birds have proven that they can not only get along but wish to live together? You can't just put another bird in with a bird that has already established it territory and expect it to share it with a strange bird.

Be prepared for the birds to bond with each other, if they live together in the same cage, even though it may not happen.
