Format: Paperback
About 75% of the information in this book is about breeding budgies in avaries or for competitions. there was little information that was specifically for pet owners, and some of the information was incorrect (for instance, it recommends grit and seeds instead of pellets). however, the writers attitude toward pet birds was refreshing: he really stresses paying plenty of attention to them and preserving their 'natural' bird behavior. however, someone who cares enough about their pet to buy a book about them already knows that.

HASH(0x99d84048) out of 5 stars Well Worth Reading April 26 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has been very helpful. John Bales has very concisely informed the reader all about choosing, breeding, and raising parakeets. Unfortunately, the budgie that I had originally bought this book for died the day I received the book. However, it was an immediate help as it taught me to diagnose the problem with my bird and what I could do, if anything, to avoid it happening again. Also, it has been a big help in my selecting a new budgie.
HASH(0x99d84084) out of 5 stars 12 and a half years of bird ownership thanks to this book Aug. 8 2012
By Stacy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I initially purchased my first parakeet as a kid with my father he bought me this book, it has wonderful and interesting information despite the things that have changed over the years. I unfortunately lost my bird to a cat strike however he was healthy, stong, and much better looking than I would have known when petstores used to only expect their birds to live from 5-6 years he author encourages owners to give their birds fresh food and feed them a varied diet ontop of their seed diet plus calcium rich cuttle stone which is essential to your bird's health. This book is more tailored to people potentially wanting to become breeders but has helped me identify when my birds were having potential health problems before they became major medical issue and allowed me to better understand color genetics of birds as a youngling.
