Description - Parrots For Dummies by Nikki Moustaki

Parrots make a wonderful alternative to the traditional pet. They're as loving, intelligent, companionable, and entertaining as a cat or a dog but they surpass them by far in many other ways. They don't require walks around the block, they're perfect for apartment living, most have long life spans, and they're full of personality. Besides, when was the last time you saw a vibrant blue cat or had a conversation with a talking dog? Whether you are just thinking about buying a parrot or you've had parrots for years, "Parrots for Dummies" is full of helpful information about how to be the best parrot guardian you can be. "Parrots for Dummies" is packed full of useful tips, hints, reminders, and warnings about everything related to parrots and their care, including: picking a parrot; bringing a new parrot home; parrot behavior made simple; taming and training your bird; and, travel tips. Author Nikki Moustaki, avian care and behavior consultant and author of "Parakeets for Dummies", gives you all of her experienced advice about owning, caring for, and loving parrots. She draws on her professional knowledge as well as her personal familiarity with the bird to show you how to make the most of your parrot guardian relationship. She includes information on: purchasing and adopting a parrot; proper housing and food; parrot illnesses and diseases; correcting behavioral problems; living in a multiple parrot household; and, breeding and showing parrots. In addition to all the help and guidance, "Parrots for Dummies" comes with a full color insert with pictures of over 25 different kinds of parrots to help you choose a new pet that catches your eye or find your existing pet's nearest relation.
