HELP! Our family is on the verge of war! We inherited a beautifull Ringneck (also not sure Indian or African?) from my inlaws which they inherited from their inlaws years ago. We estimate Popeye to be 20-27 years old allready. We have had him/her now for almost 3 years. Now somewhere along the line someone in the family claimed that this bird started laying eggs (never with us), so from then they claimed to be a female. However in my research I haven't come across another ringneck female with such a dark ring. It is not very dark, but I think dark enough to classify it as a male. (please see picture attached and my Profile Pic) I am in the process getting DNA test kits samples to settle this for good, but I am curious what everyone thinks. Also, Indian or African?
