I've been looking for a breeder of Grey Cheek parakeets for quite a while now and was wondering if anyone knew of a breeder in the Northwest US or one who might possibly ship?  I know these birds are somewhat rare in aviculture now, but I really love these little buggers!

Thanks!

there is a wonderful lady by the name of gloria at shady pines aviary in south florida. she breeds all 5 of the brotogeris species available in the US. a wonderful breeder check out her website by doing a google search for it.

i also want to add that the canary winged parakeet (the first bird in my siggie) is now the most common captive bred species... the gray cheek was a more common wild caught species but are more difficult to breed in captivity.

Thank you for your quick reply.  I have checked her website but she doesn't have any grey cheeks for sale.  I do like the canary wing too, but I'm really hoping to find a grey cheek!

she only breeds them once a year they will not be for sale until june or so. they are probably only now beginning to lay eggs. if you are really interested you should send her an email and ask to be put on her waiting list. none of the brotogeris are easy birds to find. i have been looking for a second for two years now for my canary wing.

Late to the party on this one... grey-cheeked parakeets (Brotogeris pyrrhopterus) are next to impossible to find in the US. They aren't easy breeders and most (if not all) that are bred each year go into breeding situations.

Believe me: those who have had a grey-cheeked 'keet (or in my case, those who have met one) know what you're looking for in a companion parrrot. There is just something about those cheekies... with all that said, the other brotos available in the US are really wonderful companions. I have one of Gloria's golden-winged parakeets and he is a delightful handful

I certainly hope that grey-cheeks become available in the pet trade during our lifetime. Until then, please consider another species of brotogeris. You likely won't be disappointed!

Shady pines is a wonderful aviary we bought a black headed caique from Gloria. You can view her babies online.
