Why do people try to sell their adult parrots (all kinds not just budgies) for more or the same that a breeder would charge for a young hand fed baby of the same species? I can't figure it out. :S Of course no one wants your bird; not only are they taking on potential behavioral problems and possibly avian diseases but they get to pay you a mark up rather then getting their bird from a reputable source. I am truly perplexed by this. Yes most of these ads in the avian classified specify bird only also in the same state so cost of living shouldn't be significantly different.
