Red Rumped Parakeet

RedRumped Parakeets Psephotus haematonotus

  I have a pair of these, they are kept in an aviary on their own, as the cock can be vicious to smaller birds, and in the breeding season, to any other bird. My pair breed well, laying and rearing between 4 and 6 young, in two or three rounds. I also have two pairs of Bourks Parakeets Neophema bourkii, these make better community birds.
