ACPOM - The Second-Hand Parrot
Previously owned parrots can make wonderful companions, but they sometimes require humane behaviour correction. Two expert parrot owners point out the pros and cons of adopting a bird that has had a previous owner. Topics include availability, selection, potential behaviour problems, housing feeding, health care, grooming, socialisation, acclimating, accommodating, modifying unwanted behaviours, and step-by-step instructions for everyday care. Clear, straightforward text comes with high-quality, full-colour photos and anatomically accurate line art, as well as helpful tables and charts.
