    I Have Obtained Bird

    I don't know the gender (it doesn't have that much yellow, so I was thinking female. It is a cinnamon, if that helps), I was hoping someone could help me out.

    Is my Red Rump ugly?

    I have a baby Red Rumped parakeet/parrot who I love dearly, but everyone who I show pictures of him to is saying he's "kinda ugly" or "the ugly duckling". It happens usually after I show them pictures of mature red rumps, or other red rumps with more iridescent colors. I'm still unsure if he'll...
