buying a bird from a breeder is always better! but sometimes the only available option is buying from a pet store
if u wanna talk more about birds, u can add me as a friend on the Facebook

If you still are interested in buying him, make sure that you can return him if he doesn't pass a thorough vet check (which will cost you $$$$. You could be setting yourself up for major heartbreak down the road.

Thanks for all the helpful input. We opted not to purchase him, it was way too much of a risk. Being that we already have 2 white bellied caique's, 1 cockatiel, and 1 budgie at home, we didn't want to put their health in any jeopardy. The seller that our 2 WBC's came from is getting in a baby goffin's next monday, and we might have a look at him. I trust him with our birds, because he's the owner of the store, and he's also a veterinary technician as well, who works closely with our amazing avian vet with all his birds.
I don't know if you have even thought of finding an avian rescue in your area. There are some really great birds in rescues that need a good home. Sounds like you are a good place too land at.
A good reputable avian rescue will have had the bird quarantined and vet checked so you will know the health of any bird that they have and you should get certification on it. Just a thought.

Twenty seven years for a nanday is quite a good number! What has her diet been like, and have you had her for this entire time?
PS, welcome to BB!

If she has bad kidneys, she can be put onto a kidney diet.
Is the vet sure that she has a bacterial infection? Has she been checked for a bacterial and fungal infection?
Sorry to hear she's not feeling well, I hope the meds help!

he was afraid to pull blood out due to stress because of her age and weight. He said she was too frail.
he said her vent was infected but wasn't sure with what or why
and that without a blood test there would be no real way to know
I lost her yesterday morning
I found her at 430 am when I went to check on her.
I know she had a long wonderful 27 years for a nandey
and if something was wrong she hid it until the last day.
It was swift and not drawn out, thankfully
Regardless I feel like there is a little hole in my heart

I'm so sorry though to hear you lost your nanday! I hope she enjoyed her life to the fullest!
I don't suppose you would put her body through a necropsy to find the cause of death? (I've had two necropsies done on budgies, but I just couldn't for my first conure... I knew he was ill, and his health kept fading at the end, irregardless of what I tried to do to heal him)
