RECOMMENDED BREEDERS

HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO CHECK OUT THE BREEDER?


If you don't have any other pet birds and you are unlucky to purchase a sick bird, you will have the heartache to see that one bird suffer and maybe die.  Maybe entailing substantial vet bills.  But if you already OWN other birds you have to be ESPECIALLY CAREFUL -- because you really DON'T want to go through the heart-breaking sorrow of seeing them ALL die, if you introduce a "Typhoid Mary" to your flock.  And "Typhoid Mary" doesn't have to look sick.  It could be a healthy looking CARRIER of a disease.  In any case, caution is indicated.   ANY new bird should be tested and quarantined.

If you know of any good breeders who both test and quarantine newly purchased birds and take otherwise good care of their birds please let me know.   I would appreciate hearing from any MAP-certified breeders so I can include them under "Recommended Breeders".

The following breeders have been recommended.  If you don't find anyone near you, contact any of them to get a referral to another conscious breeder, or -- if you are on a avian mailinglist or meet other "bird people", ask for a referral.
