“Werner Lantermann, who has had an bred parrots for many years, offers advice in this book for the proper care of parrots. He discusses acclimation, proper housing, daily living with parrots, and the right food for them. With the help of this information even the beginning parrot owner can learn to take care of large parrots in such a way that they stay healthy for years, that birds kept singly become friendly and may learn to “talk” and that parrots kept for breeding actually do so and raise their young successfully.
Another part of this book that will be of special interest to anyone owning or contemplating ownership of a parrot is the descriptions of different species, where thirty-five more or less commonly available large parrots are introduced. For each of these parrots exact information is given on the special conditions for maintenance, on peculiarities in behaviour, and on requirements for breeding.”
