There are a lot for sale on kijiji and Craigslist. I sometimes see babies posted there too.

You ask for pictures of them handling their birds, other folks holding them, ECT. It can be difficult, but you can always turn down a bird if you go see them and decide otherwise.

Where are you located? I'm in New Brunswick (just outside Fredericton) and the breeder I got Kalypso from is just 5 minutes up the road from me! Her name is Elaine and she is on Facebook - Precious Angels Aviary. Very nice lady. Her babies are hand raised. Kalypso has been tame from the start and is so wonderful.

I've seen a few on Kijiji, but i am running into the same issue. Kijiji sometimes makes me hesitant, just because there are some bad bird breeders on it. I would say just go with your gut, don't be afraid to ask questions and know the signs of a sick bird :)

Why do you want a parent raised chick? Hand raised are usually tamer

Because the imprinting is more important to me than tbe fact that its tame. Many issues come from improper imprinting. They tend to chose humans as their mates which leads to agressivity towards other people, attachment issues, intense stress when the human "mate" leaves (the only reason a mate would leave in the wild would be a danger), refusing to accept a bird mate, etc. It also can lead to preening problems because they didnt learn to do it properly (by imitating their parents).
