Hi there, so I'm a soon to be, new cockatiel owner whose located in North Carolina! I've been looking at all my options for purchasing a cockatiel and they're all.. Less than preferable. I don't want to buy anything from places like Petsmart or Petco and the small local business type pet stores around here are either just as bad or don't carry Cockatiels! I'm very wary of shipping animals in general, so I'd prefer to not do that either. I haven't been able to find any reputable breeders in my area.. Does anyone here have any suggestions or know of any breeders I may have missed while searching?
