Default Seeking a breeder in Nyc or one that could ship (for my neighbor)

My neighbor in Nyc is planning on buying a budgie. I have referred her to the forum to prepare. She is going to do it the right way... get the cage and research all done before bringing her bird home.

I would like to refer her to an ethical breeder vs. a pet store to buy her new pet. Does anyone know any American style budgie breeders in the Nyc or NJ area, or, any breeders that would be able to ethically/properly ship? I would love to share this option with her if there is one. ... Thanks....!

I don't currently know of any budgie breeders in that area, but I'm glad your friend will be looking through the many Talk Budgies articles we have to share! She will learn a lot; it's always great to be prepared

When I lost Twigs, I went searching for another companion for Mink. I was surprised with how common of a species budgies are, it was hard to find a breeder, let alone an ethical and high quality one. Most of the ones I found wouldn't even call me back. Then one who found out I had a mature female, refused to sell me a baby male for fear she would try to breed with it and I wouldn't be a responsible owner .

I wanted an English, which I thought I'd be able to find fairly easily. Nope. Also, some of you know how I have a penchant for unusual colors and mutations... forget that, it was proving hard to find any color period . I finally went to the exotic bird store (good store) where I got Mink, and found Chip .

I hope you have better luck for your neighbor than that!

Thanks...! It's amazing, right? I've been looking for months just out of curiosity on my own for future reference (if I ever wanted another one and/or if anyone in my family wanted one)... I thought it would be easier as well. As popular as they seem to be as pets.

Maybe one day we can change this. There are laws supposedly about how dogs & cats are bred, perhaps we can get to a point where birds will be treated with the same humanity through legislation.

In New York, there are laws that protect consumers who purchase dogs & cats... but not for birds. Which confuses me because birds live just as long (& longer) and are also an investment. I realize it will take time for things to get to a place where budgies are treated properly...(& they should be, it will take time)...but what about people buying expensive conures or the pricier birds. They're excluded from the legal protection. Only dogs and cats. I don't think it makes any sense.

Glad you eventually found Mink and Chip. They are so cute. And so cute together. I have a crush on Chip. For some reason I have a thing for the greywings.

Aw, thanks for the complement on Chip. He stood up tall and proud when I told him . Actually he's a cinnamon sky blue. Although he looks gray in pics a lot of the time, a cinnamon normal is a shade darker and browner than a greywing, and have throat spots .

Isn't it a shame that birds just aren't regarded as highly as dogs and cats are. I think many people see non-mammals as physically so much different from us, that they have a hard time being able to relate, and that prejudice makes them a "lower" creature. I don't see that ever changing sadly. There aren't all that many educational documentary tv shows on birds either. Especially on pet birds. Too bad.. that would be a great way to reach more people. They sure don't know what they're missing!

Oh... right.... I forgot he's cinnamon. Those are very pretty and I've actually never seen one in person. There's a light green cinnamon online that I think is really beautiful.

It's definitely a shame. And certainly unfair. On my checklist is to write to some legislators that are active in animal welfare and have done some great things (i.e. making it illegal to buy & sell rabbits, only allowing adoptions)... and see if they can get some things going with birds. I try to remain optimistic, just because I've seen progress. The mayor of New York City has something called the "Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals." There are some people in government that have progressive views on animal rights and that gives me some hope.

Re. my neighbor's new pet.... she is getting a bird for her 4th grade daughter.... she is very mature and has shown responsibility in taking care of pets and respects that bird ownership is a different kind of pet and is a very fragile animal..... her mother will be very involved and the bird cage will be in the family room... I'm going to research further..... but I'm wondering if a lovebird might be better than a budgie. I know little about them and need to research but I'm wondering if a lovebird might be better. For some reason I think they're more docile but I could be very wrong about that.

Yep, you're wrong

Lovebirds are much louder and have a tendency to be much more aggressive than budgies. I would say and English budgie if she wants a docile budgie; either way, budgies are the way to go!
