People mainly breeders always try to get ridiculous prices for them as babies, but usually goes for around $1500 for younger ones. I always get people trying to sell one. The guy I recused Cooper my male umbrella cockatoo from had 4 of them about a year old and was asking $700 for them and that was last summer. It is better to rescue a one that need a home instead, unless you are stuck on getting a baby?
When I got Levi he was asking $2200. I paid cash and got him for $1800.
I never see them for under 2500 and higher these days.
$700 is a steal if bred well.

it depends who you know and where you buy (breeder or shop, friend or stranger)
There are no fixed prices afaik.


As everywhere: if they are supercheap (350) there is something wrong.


(I am not a breeder or a broker, so I am just repeating what I hear and see)
It supply and demand. Depends on area?

That usually how it work here as well. Cash you can get them to come down in price, usually around $1500 to $1600 for babies locally and about $1000 for a re-home in my area in some cases people include the cage and supplies they have as well.

Re: Looking to buy a African grey Congo

Demand indeed- there are sooo many birds (very well brought up and a joy to live with but ... no longer cute and cuddy when they grow into adolescents/ obviously sexual active adults ) that need a good home...
So plze adopt one of those!



Most hobbybreeders here like to keep track of where their birds go - so they much prefer selling their babies (for a reduced price) to people who obviously know what they are doing and who will most likely not ditch the bird a few years from now.
(And of course we have the "I am just into it for the profit"-people.)

I have an African Grey that I'm seeking to sell (with cage if needed) from the Chicago, IL area.
