CAG scams

Hi, My name is Magdi and Iím new to this forum, I would like if anyone has any info on the following sites as scam or legit please share it with me.
Iím interested to get a CAG companion but had some bad luck before with scammers and there is no one close by in my state that I can visit in person and see the birds, so online is a viable option for me now. I recently lost my beloved Parakeet and would love to have a CAG companion.

The first site called Afro Birds Farm, they operate out of Canada, ON
the website is: []

The second one is called Hassan Breeders Farm out of Atlanta, GA
the website is:

Any feed back will be truly appreciated.

Re: CAG scams

Where are you located?

If in the USA it will cost a LOT to import from Canada.

Hassan farms is a scam. They sell eggs, thatís all you need to know to determine they are a scam. But, I also live near Atlanta and Iím an Aviculturist myself; I can tell you they donít exist.

What is your timeline like, and your price range? There are plenty of ways to get a CAG and Iím sure we can help you find a real person to deal with

Re: CAG scams

Sorry, but I think both are scams. The first 'sells' eggs,which no for real breeder will ever offer, and the second has no address, and has parrots for crazy cheap prices, also a tip off that there are in fact no birds actually being offered.

It really does suck big time that there are so many scams in the companion parrot marketplace these days. Check your local ASPCA or vets ( avian vets are best) to see if there are any parrot shelters or sanctuaries near you, so you can gain experience and first hand knowledge about Greys and other parrots. They might even be able to connect you with breeder(s) or folks looking to rehome their parrot.

Good Luck!

Re: CAG scams

Would you consider adopting a rescure bird?

How old are YOU? CAGs live a very very long time, I was 49yrs old when I took in Enzo, she was 13 but as im middle aged I didnt want a baby bird.

Just a thought of course.
