Some times there are smaller private pet stores that a small breeder
may be selling to them and then you can find out when newly weaned babies are available...by then you can decide what you're looking for (m/f) and 1 or 2. Previous advice from other members
is explained. If you know you can give your bird a lot of daily attention I'd at least start with a single very young bird and you
can practice developing a bond with him/her. Then you can decide if you'd want a companion. I think singles have the closest relationship to their humans, but remember that they're all individuals and no guarantees on personality or abilities. They are
very interesting as they develop from newly weaned youngsters into engaging adults. They're a lot of parrot in a small body. This web-site is the place to be, for great information.
