Good Parrot Keeping
Written by an expert on parrot care, nutrition, and training, this all-inclusive guide provides in-depth coverage of topics vital to proper parrot care, including behaviour, housing, feeding, training, and health care. The book features almost every species of parrot that is in the pet hobby (over 300 in total), including parakeets, cockatiels, macaws, cockatoos, lovebirds, and conures, and organises them by their keeping parameters. As some parrots are more closely related than others, a detailed parrot chart notes their suitability as pets and ranks the birds by level of noise, messiness, ability to talk, and other qualities parrot-keepers need to know when deciding which birds are most appropriate for their home. Numerous tip boxes discuss how to make toys, solve behaviour problems, and keep a parrot happy and healthy. The full spectrum of informative coverage makes this book a one-stop guide for bird hobbyists of every experience level - beginner, intermediate, and advanced.
