Hi! Wondering if there are any breeders in New York? Can't seem to find any I would rather not shop at a pet store. Thanks!

Hi there and to the forums!

I'm so glad that you are planning to adopt your new little one from a reputable source rather than support a pet store with less than desirable practices!

Offhand, I do know that one of our forum members, Slav, breeds budgies in the New York/New Jersey area. He's definitely worth it if you can get down there, but I'm not sure if he has any chicks right now. Here's a link to his site:
S & M Aviary English Budgie Breeders | S & M Aviary English Budgie Breeders New Jersey / New York / Pennsylvania

There is also a lovely little bird store in Rensselaer, NY, which raises their own baby budgies in-store. They have a lot of positive reviews and look very good, if you can get there.

Rensselaer Bird Center - Available Young Birds

I hope that helped a little bit--you're right, there aren't that many breeders around there!

Meanwhile, be sure to look through the forum articles and "stickies" (posts "stuck" at the top of each subforum for easy reference) to learn even more about budgies in preparation for your new little one If you have any questions afterwards, feel free to ask as we'd love to help.

Hope to see you around the forums!

I don't know whereabouts in NY you are but this is a link to the North East Avian Rescue and they sometimes have budgies. They are located in East Greenbush. Birds available for adoption from Northeast Avian Rescue They are appt only and require a home visit before placing any birds.

Thank you guys, I actually found a place not too far away called fauna nyc they have hand fed parakeets it isn't a big chain pet store, they are a small business they only raise birds but they ask for $90 is that reasonable? I'm just curious don't know if that's over priced seems like a lot to me but I don't know what hand fed birds generally go for.

Thank you!
Jen

It depends on where you are how much you pay for hand-fed budgies.
$90 isn't too much if the budgies are in good health and the breeder is a responsible and ethical breeder.

By the way, you might want to take a look at this thread.
