Red Rumped is distributed through southern and eastern Australia and measures about 27cm. In much of psittaciformes is easy to distinguish male from female, because the male has much brighter colors than the female, and it can also be distinguished by having red tail, where the male is much stronger, this if the female also has. Socially, it is preferable that these birds are bred in pairs. Though they are tame birds, sometimes with others of the same species they become especially aggressive in breeding season. Although there are many people who breed them in many couples together. They are birds that love to fly, so one should not stay in small spaces, the length being more important than width. They are birds that also adapt well to cold, although if in outdoor enclosures should always have shelter. As for food, eat mixture for parakeets and also enjoy sunflower seeds, although this should not be given in large quantities because it makes them fat. It can be played with the living space: if the space is very large and they can exercise, you may give a little more. At the time of breeding you must give them more food with eggs. Regarding the breeding, this type of parakeets are easier to breed, having more than one pregnancy per season. Red Rumped usually does its own nest, and one should put something on the bottom of the nest. The average number of eggs layed is between 4 and 6 that the female hateches for about 19 days. When the offspring are fully raised, must be separated, because sometimes their presence is not welcomed by the male. Another characteristic is that the Red Rumped, because they are excellent farmers, are also widely used as adoptive parents because they incubate and care for other eggs of similar Australians with no problem. This beautiful and popular bird is usually quiet and has a very melodic and nice chantand, a funny whistle that humans can easily imitate and they like to be challenged by us with those whistles.
