Overview

Parrotlets by Nikki Moustaki


Packing all the personality of a big parrot into their tiny bodies, parrotlets are fun and feisty companions. Like other parrots, they are intelligent and social pets, and parrotlets are active and playful as well. Parrotlets can be stubborn and bossy, and their owners must educate themselves on how to control these tendencies. Written by an expert on bird care and training, this in-depth guide discusses all seven species of parrotlets, focusing on the three that are widely available as pets. Essential topics like proper socialization, solving problem behaviors, nutrition, cages and other equipment, and health care receive detailed coverage. The author advocates positive training and the formation of a deep parrot-human bond.
