    Green Rump Breeders?

    Hi all,

    New to this forum. I have decided on Green Rump Parrotlets. However, I have found it exceedingly difficult to find any breeders of these birds. I understand they are rare but didn't realize how rare until now. My local shelters do not have any. And all popular parrotlet breeders I've googled and found on Birdsnow.com, and BirdBreeders are Pacifics.

    I live in the Nova/DC area and prefer a breeder along the Northeastern corridor. I'm fine with someone farther or West Coast breeders if they are good ethical breeders. I'm also open to adoption. If any of you know of breeders of GRP's please reply or PM me.

    Thank you!

    I am sorry you can't find any green rumps by you. I have no friends in your area to even ask if they knew anyone that had some.
    Fly Free Boomer, we will forever love you.

    Hi, and welcome. I tried googling the following: Green Rump Parrotlets for sale in North Carolina.

    I chose NC, just for curiosity, since it is on the coast. I realize it is farther south, but you may be able to have one shipped, or find out info from a person posting an ad, that would know somone farther up the coast north.

    @maxollie

    NC is fine, it is still on the east coast. It doesn't really matter at this point as I've expanded my search in popular bird sites and google to include all of the U.S. No luck.

    The only breeder so far with what looks like a Green Rump is from Fly Babies Aviary in FL. The website looks very seedy like a high volume seller. (fake reduced shipping and discount for sale bird prices). I was also told they are a broker of birds and not breeders themselves. I don't the validity of that statement, but I am avoiding that site for now.

    Yes, I think you are wise to avoid that seller. I hope you will have success sometime soon.
