Has anyone on the forum ever kept them?, i know you wont see them as natural wildlife in uk but kept in large cages they can compliment tropical gardens on most patio's in spring & summer time!!. I've had various species many years ago inc african greys, various amazon's , yellow & sulphure crested cockatoo's & almost bought a giant macaw!!. you will have to keep the wings clipped on all the above as once there sitting on there perch outside the cage, they like to take flight. They take a lot of upkeep to care for them properly but once you get to grips they can be very rewarding pets!, oh and they drive you mad mimicking other family members & other pets. karl.

Down here around London there are 1000s of ring necked parakeets flying around I've heard them but never seen one but in some areas they flock in large numbers, you wouldn't want them in your apple orchard though :ahhh!:
