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.

Re: Red Rump Parakeets

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

Thumbs up Re: Red Rump Parakeets

My daughter has a yellow male red rump. He was hand fed and as is usually the case, that makes all the difference. He is a doll baby! His attitude is somewhere between that of a lovebird and a cockatiel. He is very cocky and sure of himself. He will insist on being let out of his cage when we get home by fussing and pacing at the cage door. He loves to love on people and will let you snuggle and kiss him. While he does spend a lot of time hanging out on people, he will also happily play on his playground on top of his cage. He has a beautiful song which is great because he does like the sound of his own voice. He is similar to a male cockatiel in that he likes to try out variations to his song. He is also completely enthralled when we play him videos of other red rumps singing. He lives in our living room and a female eclectus lives across the floor from him in her cage. He is fascinated by her and the 4 little dogs that live with us. His curiosity can get the best of him, so we have to be careful as he isn't always as cautious as he should be. Over the years we have also had finches, parakeets, lovebirds, cockatiels, conures, and a military macaw. With that experience I can honestly tell you that the red rump (as long as it has been hand fed) is the best combination of personality, temperament, and sound you could ask for in a bird.

Re: Red Rump Parakeets

Red rumps certainly make good pets and are trusting by nature. I have tamed an aviary bred bird to eat out of my hand within a week.
