This book is obviously dated as it was written back when wild caught birds were available due to the fact that domestic raised birds were difficult to find. Annette, therefore gives information on taming a frightened bird instead of on a new baby African Grey Parrot loving to be cuddled.
She provides good information on the need for proper sized cages & play areas as well as information on making your birdís own climbing structure.
She has listed a good selection of foods to feed your bird, although there is no mention of a pelleted diet, which has now become a good basic staple in many birdsí diets.
She has a section on diseases & how to keep your bird healthy with good information for you to follow.
The section on Understanding African Gray Parrots is very thorough and informative. This section, combined with the good information in several of the other sections, outweigh the dated information in a couple of the other sections of the book.
You can find this book at Amazon.ca or at Amazon.com
I found some wonderful parrot t-shirts at Choice Shirts
