Aratingas: by Herman Kremer (Author)
Aratingas: by Herman Kremer (Author) (9789073217041)

Aratingas belong to the group of South American parrots.  Together with the Macaws and the Amazons they are the best known parrot likes from this region.  They are familiar to every birdkeeper, albeit in varying degrees, yet until know no easy reference book about this genus had appeared on the market.  

The author has successfully attempted to satisfy this need; he has chosen for the same layout as in his previous book "Australian Parakeets and their Mutations", a publication which has been received with extreme enthusiasm by aviculturists.  

"Aratingas" therefore, also contains high quality photographs of all the species and most of the sub-species, which once again have virtually all been taken by Cees Scholtz. 

The photographs accompany practical and clear description in which all the important characteristics of each species are given:  sub-species, origin of name, parents and you, sizes and weights, habitat and habits, diet, nesting sites, breeding process, general remarks and mutations.

    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!!!

It counters the opinion that the hobby is responsible for reducing wild stock, but also emphasizes the importance of conserving the world's wild stocks and encouraging responsible captive breeding.

        Psittacine Aviculture Perspectives, Techniques & Research: by Richard M. Schudbot (Author) & Kevin Clubb (Author) & Susan Clubb (Author) (0963142402)

        This book is an attempt to merge the art and science of aviculture.  Many vital aspects of aviculture and avicultural medicine are addressed in detail.  Techniques and research findings of ABRC staff are represented in chapters which address caging, diets, incubation, hand-feeding, avicultural management, development and growth  of chicks and more.

        With the application of science and economics, aviculture can meet the needs of the pet industry for many, if not most of the species currently in trade. 

        This volume is just a beginning in the application of science to avicultural production, hopefully one which will assist others to produce healthy, well adjusted birds.

        28 chapters with sample chapters are:

         a. Management of Psittacine chicks and Eggs in the Nets
         b. Common Sense in incubation
