RED-RUMPED PARAKEET Psephotus Haematonotus
« on: May 29, 2016, 11:59:30 AM »
It's one of the best parakeets for the beginner because they are hardy, breed well and usually reasonable priced. And, for course, are very attractive birds.

The cocks seem to improve in their colouring as they get older. The hen lays four to six eggs in a clutch and will often double-brood. Their eagerness to breed and its good qualities as a feeder make them act as foster parents for other parakeets.

I keep my pare in a suspended cage - 600 mm x 600 mm x 1.2m

And I use a standard lovebird nest box.

I feed them the same seed mix I give to the lovebirds and they love greens.

There has been an explosion of new colour mutations over the years. For example: Blue Pied, Yellow Pied, Silvers and Lutinos. What mutation do you have? Why not post some photos here?

Come tell us your experience of these wonderful birds.
