So no, they should not ever let outside people in their breeding-rooms/aviaries, nor in-contact with their breeder-birds.

That being said, if you ask for photos of the parent birds, there's no reason why they shouldn't be able to show you photos of them. But as far as contact with them, that's a big no-no.
I never knew that, I always assumed not letting people see the parents were for reasons of disturbing them and putting them into a 'mood' and also as a precaution against 'sticky fingers'

Re: Parrot Breeder - Closed Aviary

If you live in Canada, then I would recommend finding a breeder in Canada. Getting a bird from across the border can be difficult and rather expensive!

As far as closed aviary... to get a better understanding of it, I think it would help to look into MAP.... Model Aviculture Program.
