Good Parrotkeeping offers everything a parrot keeper needs to know about caring for his or her feathered friend. Written by an expert on parrot care, nutrition, and training, this all-inclusive guide provides in-depth, all-inclusive coverage of topics vital to proper parrot care, including behavior, 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 organizes 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 behavior problems, and keep a parrot happy and healthy. Full-color photos, sidebars, and tip boxes illustrate key points throughout the authoritative text. The full spectrum of informative coverage makes Good Parrotkeeping a one-stop guide for bird hobbyists of every experience levelbeginner, intermediate, and advanced.
