The Swift Parakeet: by Cyril Laubscher (Author)
The Swift Parakeet: by Cyril Laubscher (Author) (9780950030654)

The puzzling question as to why European breeders are successful in raising young while Australian breeders seem to have difficulties needed investigation along with the scientific aspect of why this species is now endangered in the wild.  

While planning the research for this book, it soon became apparent that a trip to Tasmania during the breeding season of the Swift Parakeet was necessary.  To complete the scientific research an avicultural research program was undertaken to obtain details from breeders of Swift Parakeets among the members of various societies including The Parrot Society (UK); Parkieten Societeit (Holland) and Club des Oiseaux Exotique (France).  Similar research was conducted in other countries including Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greenland, Switzerland and the USA.  A total of 72 questionnaires with information on housing, feeding and breeding Swift Parakeets were returned.  While this is only a small number of the breeders around the world, it certainly illustrates how much interest there is in this colorful parakeet. 

This book is the culmination of a great deal of effort provided by many people around the world who have willingly contributed and who are deeply concerted about the survival of this beautiful parakeet in the wild and in aviculture

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.

One of the main problems experienced by potential breeders of this small finch is the difficulty in sexing by visual means.  The author describes an almost infallible method of sexing, which will no doubt prove helpful to those who, in the past, have given up any attempt to breed the Bicheno because of their inability to identify correctly true pairs.
