On average, the price of an Amazon parrot varies between $500 and $1,000 for most species, although very rare Amazons can go much higher.
The cost can vary depending on the species and where you purchase it. Some Amazon parrots can be quite expensive, while others are more affordable.
- On the lower end of the spectrum, you can find some Amazon parrots, such as the Blue-fronted Amazon or the Lilac-crowned Amazon, for around $700 to $1,000.
- Some of the more popular and widely available Amazon parrots, such as the Yellow-naped Amazon or the Double Yellow-headed Amazon, can cost between $1,000 to $3,000.
As always, try to buy a weaned bird from a breeder that handles their babies a lot. Amazons are very individual birds and a breeder that has handled their babies and knows their personalities can help you choose the particular bird that most fits what you’re looking for, unlike a larger breeder who doesn’t know his/her babies – even if you buy the species you are most likely to get along with best, you may not end up with an individual that fits that same profile!
It’s important to remember that the initial purchase price is only a small part of the cost of owning an Amazon parrot. They require a significant investment in terms of time and money for proper care, including a healthy diet, veterinary care, toys, and a suitable cage or aviary.
Blue-Fronted Amazon Price
Blue Fronted Amazon Parrots are easily purchased from breeders and pet stores and generally cost between $700 and $1,000. You can find out the most about them at your local parrot rescue and see the reasons they’ve given up to rescues in the first place. We highly recommend you volunteer at a rescue with the type of bird you are interested in getting before doing an impulse buy of such a long commitment. They are known to be good with children and pets if they have been properly trained and socialized.
