Green rumps are pretty difficult to breed, I know the woman you are referring to my friends got a green run from her. She is a good bird and is still doing well, personally I would be extra cautious of green rumps because they can be very fragile.. I would either wait until she has some available if she starts reading them or just consider a Pacific parrotlet, just my humble opinion.

I am speaking to her about a Pacific now. Our original wish was for a reg blue or green Pacific boy so will see what happens. When you say fragile what do you mean?

Well, I am not sure exactly what about them is so difficult to breed but they are, and then they take longer to wean and sometimes breeders send them off to their homes too soon and they regress needing to be hand-fed again which would be very troublesome, I definitely would not want to have to deal with that. I have seen more than a couple instances on the forum where a green rump was purchased and passed soon after being received at the new home, there diss position in general is more timid and shy , not as outgoing or Hardy so to speak as a Pacific parrotlet. But the breeder will know best, you can ask her as well too.

I think the fundamental issue is that the green rumps had a smaller gene pool when the CITES laws were put in place have have the typical problem with inbreeding you get with any small breeding stock. We see some of this with the normal parrotlets and they had a much larger breeding stock at the start. I wish they would adjust the CITES laws to all for more wild animals to be added to the avian breeding stock. There were some champions of this back in the 1990s and early 2000s but they seem to have left the field.

Ok. Thank you. I understand. We originally wanted a pacific which is what I have always had but the sweetness of the green rump just got to me.

JackieRTP will become famous soon enough

The breeder in Colorado who has both Green Rump and Pacific parrotlets is excellent. I will PM you the name of someone else to checkout, but I do not think that she has any Green Rump babies either at the moment.
