Pet parrots can be bought online from individual breeders who list them on sites such as Bird Breeders and Birds Now. Most sellers are willing to ship their birds, but some require local pickup. Both of these sites have search options for finding local birds as well.
Buying birds online can be risky since there is no way to physically see the bird and assess its health or personality. Perspective buyers should ask the current owner as many questions as possible, including questions about referrals and health guarantees. Opt for the shortest shipping time available, and do not have birds shipped during hot or cold spells in the weather.
