RECOMMENDED SOURCES FOR BUYING BIRDS
Click on preferred (underlined) source below to locate a supplier near you, or to find a source that is willing to safely ship a bird to you. I will continuously update this list of recommended suppliers of adorable ;-) birds, so keep visiting!
Recommended Sources for Birds:
Breeders / Aviculturists Bird Stores
Please note: MAP-certified breeders do not have to wait for a referral, but can contact me directly to be added under "Recommended sources". The reason being that MAP-certified breeders adhere to appropriate health- promoting procedures; and are subject to inspections by vets on a regular intervals. For me, this is recommendation enough. The information I would need is: Name of aviary/breeder, website address (optional), city and state (not the address for security reasons) and contact information (telephone number, fax, e-mail, etc.)
Birdstores & breeders (uncertified) will have to be referred by a vet or by a satisfied customer, and if negative information that is based on verifiable facts comes to light, I will not hesitate to removed anyone from "recommended sources."
