Here is a link with info on birds that may help you. The smaller the bird, the smaller the price tag.
We have a parakeet that we got at Petsmart. You can look up different bird breeds and info on what is needed.

Parakeets or Zebra zinches are the cheapest birds you can buy around here. Parakeets are anywhere between $10-$20 and Zebra Zinches are around $8 to $14 depends where you buy them. And I've seen Cockatiels handfed between $25-$100 usually if you get a pair their more.

we checked our shelter in town and they don't have any and only get maybe 1-2 birds a year. i got my parakeet from petco ,but she doesn't want to buy from a pet store. she would either like a budgie, cockateil, or lovebird,but she won't buy from a pet store.

Well if she don't want to buy one from a pet store try looking in your local newspapers and see if anyone has one for sale in there. Or look for a local breeder.
