I have never bred birds before but from what I've read I would definitly move them to a quiet room. Also they might feel safer if they are not where alot of traffic is.

Here is a good link for breeding parrotlets, there is a section on Green Rumps as well. It covers almost everything. Go to the "Basics of breeding Parrotlets" first, it gives you some great info.

Good Luck to you, and let us know how these two get on.
