9781847972637: Keeping Parrots: Understanding Their Care and Breeding

Parrots are considered to be one of the most intelligent types of bird and it is their innate characteristics that have made them popular to keep as pets since the Roman times, although parrot-keeping reached its peak only in the last century. Their popularity can be attributed to their colorful plumage, their intelligence and flair for mimicry, their playful behavior, and their ability to bond with human beings. Naturally they require a considerable amount of dedicated care, attention, and psychological stimulation in order to lead happy, balanced, and contented lives. It is therefore essential that parrot owners are aware of their pet's needs, day-to-day requirements and their responsibilities as owners. Topics covered include: Day to day care of your parrot. How to create the right environment for your parrot. Dietary needs and the importance of feeding a balance diet. Practical advice on grooming and feather plucking. Common disease in parrots; recognizing the symptoms. Managing behavior and effective training. Breeding parrots; incubation and hand rearing.
