I thought may be it would be a good idea to start a thread where everyone posts parrot- related scam websites so hopefully less people get scammed by them?

I just mentioned it incase you hadn’t done a search already- there’s quite a few different threads regarding these scam sites. There was one that I remember having some really simple ways to identify these scams.

The problem is that as soon as they are identified, they shut down and move to a different name. Which is part of the reason they keep coming back over and over again.

I've posted some tips on my website: How to Spot a Parrot Scam

I have come across several scams as well. It’s infuriating because I’m honestly trying to find a breeder in Texas. The last guy was asking me to pay him in Amazon gift cards!

I highly recommend Jadiesbirdnest in the Houston area. I got my wonderful boy from her and another member is about to get a little girl from her. @txhelen
