A Guide to Australian White Cockatoos: Their Management Care & Breeding Paperback: by Chris Hunt (Author)
A Guide to Australian White Cockatoos: Their Management Care & Breeding Paperback: by Chris Hunt (Author) (9780957702417)
Australia's white cockatoos have fascinated the world over for over 200 years, and their popularity is evidenced by the frequency with which you encounter them in Australia's backyards as pets. However, it has often been said that familiarity breeds contempt. It is unfortunate that their proper care, both as pets and in aviculture, has long been neglected. If aviculturists truly wish to argue that they keep birds because they love them, this situation must be remedied. Contents include management, housing, feeding and nutrition, breeding, diseases and disorders common to cockatoos.

Sure to become a standard handbook for the breeders and keepers of these unique and magnificent birds, this well-researched, well-written book from Australian Birdkeeper is richly illustrated and full of practical hints on management, housing, feeding and nutrition, breeding, diseases, sexing, breeding, and mutations. Species profiles include the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Short-billed Corella, Eastern Long-billed Corella, Major Mitchell's Cockatoo, and Galah.

    Parrots Their Care and Breeding: by Rosemary Low (Author) (071370876x)

    This is the most comprehensive coverage of the parrot family n captivity to have appeared in any language.  In recent years there has been a necessary shift of emphasis amount aviculturist, who, since importations have been severely restricted, now concentrate their efforts on breeding from their birds.  

    This book therefore deals very thoroughly with this aspect and includes the experiences of breeders throughout the world, many of them previously unpublished.  

    Parrots are especially interesting as aviary subjects, certain species breed so readily that there are more of them in captivity than in their often shrinking natural habitat; others, however, are extremely difficult to rear under captive conditions. 

    AS pets, parrots have been popular for centuries for their intelligence, affectionate nature, engaging personalities and their ability to mimic.  The parrot owner who is interested primarily in this aspect will find information on individual species' characteristics throughout the book. 

    Ninety full colour photographs illustrate widely varying species of parrot and include some extremely rare specimens. 

    This is a HEAVY BOOK - with 600+ pages!  With 28 chapters - Species, Management, aviaries, feeding, the pair bond, breeding, hand-rearing, mutations, parrots as pets, sick birds, causes and care..... just to name a few!!!

      Parrots A Guide to Parrots of the World: Tony Juniper (Author) and Mike Parr (Author) (0300074530)

      This is the first book created primarily for the field identifications of parrots, one of the most familiar and colorful groups of birds. 

      From the mighty macaws to the diminutive pygmy parrots, the 350 species of parrots include cockatoos, parakeets, lovebirds and budgerigar.  Most are brightly colored or even gaudy but a few are drab, and some are nocturnal and flightless. 

      Parrots found throughout most of the warmer regions of the world, occur in greatest numbers in Australasia and South America. 

      This book includes 88 superb color illustrations of every species and most identifiable subspecies of parrots as well as range maps of their locations.  It offers many first hand insights into the ecology of each species, vocalizations, life cycle characteristics and geographical variations.  It also provides up-to-date information on the conservation status of those species of parrots that are threatened or endangered.
