Damn...I would have thought they would be cheaper in San Diego since there are literally thousands of parrot-breeders throughout CA...$750 for a Ruppels Meyers is actually what you'd pay here in northeast US, from Ohio over to New Jersey, up through the New England states, and down through Maryland and DE...Once you get into Virginia then you start seeing the prices of hand-fed baby parrots from both bird/pet shops and private-breeders. And the further south or southwest you go, the cheaper they get, with Georgia, Florida, and Texas being the cheapest states to buy a parrot in by-far...But I have a close friend from high-school who moved to Los Angeles about 15 years ago, and another who moved to San Diego right out of high-school (1997, he's a year older than me), and both of them have birds and have sent me videos and photos from multiple bird-shops out there (that's the other thing, there are very, very few bird-shops in this area, even in New York, New Jersey, etc., there are only a handful)...The one in Los Angeles bought a hand-raised baby Blue and Gold Macaw from a private breeder in Orange County, CA (Fullerton I believe), and he paid only $1,200 for him! And that included him being able to drive to the breeder's home each weekend to spend a few hours with his baby and to hand-feed him...A hand-fed baby Blue and Gold Macaw from a private breeder here costs between $2,000-$2,500! It's ridiculous. If I ever decide to bring a larger parrot into my family, I'm either going to adopt/rescue it or if I get another hand-raised baby from a breeder I'll be traveling south for it for sure, I'll save on-average between $500-$1,000!

Re: Meyers parrot price

Mine was $650 in San Diego at a local pet store. I bartered with them and finally got them down to $450, which is actually the average price for Meyers in my area.

I absolutely adore my little Meyers parrot. Very cuddly, not loud, full of personality, busy and simply sweet!

Re: Meyers parrot price

I know this is an old one, but I have been looking at meyers recently and they now run $1500 around here (Delaware Valley) i can't believe they tripled in price in only 2 years. Craziness.

Yeah. This is the price at the 3 bird stores that are withing a 2hr drive of me. Going to be keeping a eye out this spring for a breeder to buy direct vs through a store.

Birdbreeders actually has one for 1500 from birds by joe that is one of the stores near me.
