PARRAKEETS by Herbert Zim


Email this review


Careful pencil drawings by Larry Kettlekamp and Mr. Zim's clear, friendly way of imparting information give parrakeet owners and fanciers all they need to know to start raising their pets. Besides the birds' interesting Australian background and history of immigration to different countries and homes of the world, there are explicit instructions on raising, feeding, training (to talk) and the essentials of breeding. Simple enough for youngsters to follow, these are excellent directions and a directive for new pleasure in bird raising.
