Laurel A. Rockefellerabout this book: I love my cockatiels. Living with cockatiels is one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, something I plan to continue doing until the day I die. But as small cockatoos, cockatiels offer challenges that most first time bird "owners" find daunting.
In this simple, practical guide I cut through the technical stuff that fills most guide books about parrots to help you understand cockatiels as they really are. Filled with full colour photos (black/white in paperback) and personal stories from my thirty five years raising parrots, you'll be entertained, educated, and delighted by the wonderful world of cockatiels.
Topics covered include:
-- Cockatiels as cockatoos
-- Primary cages
-- Travel/hospital cages (including cages for domestic & international air travel)
-- Play spaces
-- Food dishes
-- Communicating with a new or shy cockatiel
-- Preventing psittacosis (the main disease that transmits between humans and birds)
-- Games to play with your new bird
A must have for any animal lover!
For ages 8+.
