Australian White Cockatoos have fascinated the world over for over 200 years, and their popularity is evidenced by the frequency with which you encounter them in Australia’s backyards as pets. However, it has often been said that familiarity breeds contempt. It is unfortunate that their proper care, both as pets and in aviculture, has long been neglected. If aviculturists truly wish to argue that they keep birds because they love them, this situation must be remedied. Contents include management, housing, feeding and nutrition, breeding, diseases, and disorders common to cockatoos.
Sure to become a standard handbook for the breeders and keepers of these unique and magnificent birds, this well-researched, well-written book from Australian Birdkeeper is richly illustrated and full of practical hints on management, housing, feeding and nutrition, breeding, diseases, sexing, breeding, and mutations. Species profiles include the Sulphur-crested Cockatoo, Short-billed Corella, Eastern Long-billed Corella, Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo, and Galah.
