Default Looking for a budgie breeder in TX

Hi, everyone.

I'm looking to get a budgie for our family. We've owned one before from a pet shop, and I just really don't want to go that route again. However, after hours spent surfing the web, I'm finding it difficult to locate budgie breeders in my area. I'm surprised - I live in the Dallas TX area.

I get that breeding budgies isn't enormously lucrative. The little guys just aren't that expensive. But I expected to find more enthusiasts engaged in breeding and raising budgies. Is it typically that difficult to find a budgie breeder?

So far I've found 2 within about 50-75 mile radius. And 1 seems to possibly be out of the business... Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks!

I have a woman coming from Texas to pick up her new budgie baby from me, all the way up here in Kansas. She lives between Dallas and San Antonio.

So I'm guessing there isn't much of a choice down there. Sorry

Hi there and welcome to the forums

I did a lot of research and I discovered the same thing--most breeders in Texas seem to raise exotic parrots.

There are some out of state breeders like J.W up there which would be a bit of a drive but definitely worth it, or you could ship a baby budgie in with Cutelittlebirdie's Aviaries.

Hope you have the best of luck in finding a new little friend!
Keep us posted!

Deb has Listed several excellent champion English breeders. Julie Willis is another member of BAA and lives near Dallas. She is a member of one of the clubs listed. Check also the ABS site for other resources, There are lots of ways to transport your new budgies home if you do not pick them up. My first special Breeding pair came from Julie Willis and another local breeder attended
one of the Texas shows and brought my budgies home to me here in Georgia.
Best wishes in finding your new budgies. Jo Ann
