how to find a bird breeder

Find out the name of your breeder’s avian veterinarian. It’s not good if they can’t seem to tell you the name of the veterinarian or the veterinary clinic where they work. Request the veterinary records of your possible new baby from the breeder. If they can’t supply them, you might want to think about purchasing a bird from a different breeder. Ask the veterinarian some questions if they can provide you with the veterinarian’s name. Verify the well-being and health of your bird’s parents.

Still, you give them a call. However, after speaking with the breeder, your concerns only grow. They demand a check be sent before they will give you the bird, and they won’t send pictures. You can prevent this scenario by reading this article.

Try to find reviews for this breeder. Ask any bird owners you know who have bought birds from this breeder some questions. If you can locate the breeder’s customers, do not hesitate to ask them questions. Are their birds healthy, active, socialized, friendly? Were they able to meet the parents of their bird? Were they able to hand-tame the bird when they bought it, or did they have to work with it for a while? Did the bird have any health issues when they bought it? Does it have any health issues now?

You want to expand your family by bringing home a new baby bird. You have chosen the best species for your family. You discover an advertisement for a person who breeds this species in the newspaper. But their advertisement seems a little suspicious….

First off- check this person’s website. A trustworthy breeder will typically, though not always, have a website with contact details, costs, and pictures of the babies and their parents. Giving a brief introduction to themselves and their birds is also beneficial. If a breeder is dedicated enough to create a photo-rich, educational website, they are probably knowledgeable, seasoned breeders. Advertisements for breeders who only have emails and no websites may indicate that the breeders are unscrupulous or inexperienced.
