I bought my tiel from a breeder.
But petsmart has such a bad rep when it comes to birds. We have a store that just opened in March or April and their birds are STILL under quarantine. I don't think I would buy a bird from them, or any animal. I might buy supplies, but no living creature.

I got lucky. I bought Aruba at a PetSmart in Madison. I had not found this site or heard anything on the negative of these stores. Aruba is healthy and happy so it's good I got him out of there before he got sick. smile

Not all local mom and pop pet stores are good either. I recently went to a small local store and they had too mant keets in too small a cage. My local Pet Supplies Plus is a chain but when they have keets they are in a big area ans always seem happy and playful, I got my Sweetboy and Sweetgirl there years ago and they have always been healthy. I think it depends on the individual store.

yes we have a mom and pop place around here that had 6 rabbits kept in a 30 gallon tank. I called the spca. They had no bedding, not that it mattered since there was no room to lie down anyhow frown

I tried to count how many budgies they had in a single cage and stopped counting at 40. The cage was only slightly larger than mine, I have a small vision cage shocked

I know, and to think, I feel bad because my 2 live in a vision cage, I wish I had bigger for them. And to cram over 40 birds into a cage like that. WOW.

I complained about a snakes they had as well, it was a burmese python, still young, but even still they are large snakes. They had it in a 30 gallon tank, the poor thing didnt even have the room to EVER uncoil. It had sores on its nose from seeking (when they are in small tanks, they push their noses on all the edges looking for escape).

There needs to be laws regulating to standard of care for animals in pet stores, for the most part the smaller stores are better, but they still have some serious horror stories.
