Petco or PetSmart for small animal quality?

We bought a parakeet at a small local pet store. I want a second one but the store only had blue. I know Petco/Petsmart have colors. Is one better than the other for pet quality?

  • I would say go to your local breeder, thats where they get them from, but they are just charging you more.

    Support the little guy, better yet, buy it from a family who accidently had babies cause they sexes turned out wrong! oops.

  • First try your local shelter or craigslist.org to see if anyone needs to rehome one. Past that I would say petsmart- I worked at petco for years and the quality of the animals we got was not that great. The animals at petsmart always seem better to me.
