    Beak is just a small step up from the lovebirds. :)

    I do love the coloring of them and I think they are a bird we could add to our flock if he can just get over his beak issues. I think the fact Gracie is being so nice to him all of sudden might give me some brownie points lol.

    Hi There-My name is Richard. This is my first post here. Towards the later part of last year I was able to get a Ruppell's Female. She's as cute as can be, but what I really like is that she has some large bird traits in a small bird body. Here's a couple of photos. The first is not so good and the second is of her errrrr ummmm bum. :smuggrin:

    Welcome to AA. Your Ruppell's is beautiful. What is her name and how old is she? May I ask where you got her from? I wouldn't mind getting a Ruppell's. :)

    Bebe is lovely. Rupells is a Poicephalus species, correct? Welcome to the Avenue and have fun looking up old posts in areas of your interest.

    Hi All-Sorry it's taken me awhile to get back. I was driving down the west coast. Thanks for the nice comments about Bebe. I've been an aquarium keeper for a long time and have always liked keeping "different" fish. Basically I'm more partial to things that aren't run of the mill. Had my eye on getting a Ruppell's female for some time. In 2014 I spoke to one breeder about getting a girl and subsequently met up with him at a bird mart. Was really surprised and disappointed to see how unfriendly and rude he was. I wasn't wasting his time or being overly chatty either. At any rate, in November I saw an ad for a Ruppell's female. As it turned out her mate escaped through a food bowl slot that was not replaced. So, she is a breeder and she is about 6 years old. Been reading up on and have viewed countless photos of Ruppells females. What I particularly love about her is she seems to show more blue in the chest/belly area than the others I've seen. She also seems to have slightly less yellow in the shoulders, but I'll take it for a trade off for the added blue. :) The blue isn't a solid blue, but more scalloped looking. Here's more bad photos of her.

    For the life of me, I do not understand why these guys aren't more popular in the pet trade. Bebe is absolutely stunning!

    Beautiful markings and coloration. I am jealous. ;-)

    Ruppell's just aren't common and when available they generally cost $$$. Have never seen one up for adoption just for sale.

    There are many members here from a wide variety of countries from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa. Quite a few are from Canada, however I am not aware of any who own Ruppell's parrots.
