Red Rump Parakeets
I was at one of my local bird stores and looking at a blue parrotlet, when I noticed the stangest sound. There were these two parakeets trying to get my attention. The sounds they were making were amazing, I had never anything like it.
The label on the cage said "Red Rumped Parakeets". Once home, I did some searching and they are either Opaline or Rubino. The two that were practically begging for attention were all yellow with red on their backs, like this picture:
The third one had grey on it's back. After researching, it appeared that one might be the female. I was unable to find much information on these guys.
Does anybody know if they are they similar to the Rosellas, where they are beautiful, but don't like being handled? It doesn't seam so, since they were coming right over to me and making noises. The Rosellas always stay away when I go over to their cages.

They are such beautifully looking birds.
I am not familiar with them at all tho.
Below is a link, great info, pertaining to the Opaline or Rubino.
Hopefully other members will assist with your query.

Re: Red Rump Parakeets
i have a red rump (male) and a rosella housed together. they're both pretty shy and not at all tame. females have a duller colour than the males, and they do make cute little chirps.
maybe if you had a red rump on his own you could get him tame, it sounds like they're use to people already. my little guy is 18 months old now and was a rescue, he's had a traumatic life before me and is probably why he fears humans.
they are similar in personality to rosella's though and in the wild they often flock together. x
