Default Which Parrot Should Be.......

If you have a choice, which parrot/parakeet should be imported in small numbers to America and widely bred and distributed like budgies?

Since the early 1990's it has become illegal to import parrots into the US pet trade.

We already have a problem. Prolific species such as budgies being "widely bred and distributed" has led to the unfortunate situation of many, many thousands of unwanted and abused pets each year. Birds being "widely bred" by breeders, hobbyists, bird owners, and animal mills with deplorable conditions and no regard to health and genetic quality. All of which ultimately contributes to the suffering of more animals.

So my answer is... None

Great answer, Julie! I thought the very same thing. Bird mills are just as bad if not worse than puppy mills, and I don't see that slowing down anytime soon, unfortunately. I don't support anything to do with animal mills or anything like that. All they do is promote terrible morals and animal abuse, and that's just not right.

My answer is also none.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the best practices for the health and well-being of budgies.

I really do not understand why you've posed this question on the Talk Budgies Forum.

Importing and widely breeding and distributing parrots, in my opinion, would be promoting practices this forum explicitly discourages.
