I'm the wrong side of the pond so can't help too much I'm afraid.
I would search for your local parrot recuse organisations, if you have any nearby. I know all my local rescues always have birds available. I would personally avoid anyone trying to sell birds on facebook or selling/listing websites- some of those can be scams. I'd always insist on seeing the bird(s) first before making any kind of commitment. Unfortunately there's a lot of shady people around who will happily just take the money and disappear.

African Queen Aviaries are a very reputable breeder. Jean Pattison I believe owns it. I do plan to buy an African Grey from her in the future. Are you looking to buy or adopt a bird? They are very different. Or are you going to foster one? All three are very different. Do beware of scams. I very nearly got scammed by some horrible person on this site:

https://classicafricangreyforsale.com/

And then again on this site:

https://terryparrotfarm.com/

And then again on this site:

https://www.afrobirdsfarm.com/

 

Yes, I was quite foolish, now that I think about it. Thankfully, I found this site that rescued me and all my money:

Edit: I forgot to mention I almost got scammed by another site:

Something I've noticed recently- an influx of "breeders" (scammers) trying to sell eggs. I've seen a lot of people falling for this because they think raising a bird from an egg gives them a better experience/bond with the bird. When in actual fact raising a bird from an egg is incredibly time consuming and difficult and filled with risks.
Any genuine breeder would never try and sell an egg, or an unweaned baby bird. A reputable breeder would only ever offer fully weaned birds and would only ever let the bird go when they were definitely ready to go.

Yes, totally.
