Re: how much does a parrot breeder make in general

Hey Ann,I've been breeding Amazons for years, no money,it cost me to have them i'm sure.I started to breed tiels for people who wanted a parrot but needed something other than a amazon for a first pet.I might have made a little money with the tiels. but vet bills could at any time wipeout your profits.If your going to be a breeder forget ever taking a vacation or even a long weekend.Rescues the same deal, what ever i make off my breeders just help support my rescue birds.Maybe if you find some small niche you can make a little money, but if you want to support yourself or send your kids to college,you'll need to get very large with contracts to supply lots of babies to a wholesaler.Go to school and be a vet.
