I think it depends. Some pet stores are terrible, but some breeders are terrible too.

Might as well take a look around your local pet stores and see if they offer parrotlets or whatever you wanna buy. Then see if they're clean, well run, and if the staff are knowledgeable. Try to see if you can get to know your bird before you buy it, too.

Breeders you treat the same way, try to get photos of their facilities, see if they know what they're talking about, and get to know your bird before hand.

I would agree with Vicky Chai Tea, they all vary individually.

I got my plet at the Bird Jungle (the link you posted). She is wonderful. They really know their birds there, and I would buy from then again in a minute.

Bird Paradise is a wonderful store -- in fact, it's one of the things I miss most about New Jersey (we're living in Central Florida now). The store is immaculate, the staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and the sheer size and scope of the store plus the variety of things they have for sale has to be seen to be believed.

If you're in Poughkeepsie, you're fairly near Stanford, CT, where Parrots and Company is located. Our Sun Conure and Timneh both came from them -- we were so happy with out experience buying Mookie, we went back when it was time to get Pepper.
