Re: Looking to buy a African grey Congo

What part of the world are you from?
2k would not be enough to buy a CAG (congo African grey) where I'm from...

Re: Looking to buy a African grey Congo

We have a lot of (hobby) breeders here (no parrotmillsituations), and co-parenting is the norm.
*(here the babies stay with the parents -its the law- and usually have a bit of human interaction daily, so far less bad habbits/traumaas and no handfeeding mishap-issues)
Breeding is mosly done for fun, not profit, the only thing that makes them more expensive to buy is the amount of vet-testing, transponderplacing etc..


Lots of breeders only breed with fully tested parents and will not test the babies, others will let you test the babies on your own, other will fully test the babies before even putting the "for sale" notice up.
So if you know who you buy from a babybird does not have to be expensive.
(we still have some terrible shops that will sell possible sick babies and blame you if they die / we are not heaven! Horrible greedy people are universal.)


You live in one of the most expensive regions of the world!
(and a very beautifull one!)

Re: Looking to buy a African grey Congo

sometimes, sometimes they are 1000
(we are talking babybirds here)
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)

People mainly breeders always try to get ridiculous prices for them as babies online, but usually goes for around $1500 locally 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?

Need to know area you live around? Experience and setup you have with birds? As if in my area can ask around as know a few breeders and shelters in area if you are looking for a baby, or don't mind a older one, or a rescue?
