Hi, I'm new to this forum. Here's my deal. I've never owned a parrot, but I've dreamed about it for years. My wife and I plan on it as soon as we are in a place where we can take care of one and give it the attention it deserves. We want a baby female blue and gold, and we've already picked out the name Myrtle. In the mean time, I am wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction to reputable breeders in either the San Diego or Portland, OR area. I'm from portland, but I'm in the military and stationed near san diego, so depending on whether we get our bird before or after I get out, that will decide where I buy.
