    This is the best book about parakeets!

    I really like this book. It is very thorough, and has many, many pictures. Some of the pictures are very cute, like one of a parakeet preening a guinea pig. I like how the author gives instructions on building a bird tree, and how to take care of your bird if it is hurt or sick. Also, the first chapter talks about parakeets in the wild, and that is something I haven't seen in other parakeet books.

    Very good book for parakeet care, including food, housing, breed

    Very good book for parakeet care, including food, housing, breeding, and even a history of where they originated. There are also some tips on taming. Would like to have had more photos of the various color mutations, but overall, the book provides enough information for anyone looking to give proper care to their new addition.
