Has Anyone...

Has anyone read/heard/have any of these books:

My mom ordered me a bunch of birdy books from amazon.
The reviews looks good but i want to know if any of you have or heard of any of them.


This Book:
Amazon Amazon



This Book:
Amazon Amazon


This Book:
Amazon Amazon


And This Book:
Amazon Amazon


and i did order the DVD of that but it was all messed up and said it couldn't ship it or something. So i'm just going to order it from somewhere else or wait.

And i'm thinking of getting these books, has anyone heard anything about them? again i read the reviews and they seemed pretty good but i jsut want to know if any of you know.

This Book:
Amazon Amazon


This Book:
Amazon Amazon


This Book:
Amazon Amazon


This Book:
Amazon Amazon

This one, i ahve Birds for Dummies and its really good, but this doesn't have a review for it so i'm guessing it good since i also have cockatiels for dummies, and they're both real good and usually the dummy books are good.

And This Book:
Amazon Amazon

And this book i don't plan on adopting/rescueing a ;second hand parrot' anytime soon but its looks really interesting and heard great comments about it. And in the future i may decide to rescue.

Anyway that's all. If you have any other books that you recommend, let me know. Thanks

Re: Has Anyone...

Yea, I own Parrots for Dummies (surprise surprise) , Guide to a Well Behaved Parrot, and Parrot Training...I thought all of them have decent points and are interesting reads...Don't base their effectiveness on Iggy's behavior ROFL.

Re: Has Anyone...

I've got guide to a well behaved parrot. Got it a long long time ago in a faraway land when I got my first parrot, a blue crowned Conure, Echo.
It's a wonderful book, I believe they expand on it every few years. I need a new one as mine is falling apart from years of use.. and from the bites of my not well behaved parrots.

Aww you had a blue crowned conure. I want one of those! The only thing that's stopping is i don't what i'd when i move out. You see they're kind of loud. My mom has said she'd take care of any of my pets/birds when i move out but still.

Re: Has Anyone...

My Blue Crown wasn't loud at all.
That's only because you couldn't hear him over the Umbrella and Goffins Cockatoo teaching baby Madison how to scream.
Honestly though he was very quiet.. he spent his entire life hanging upside down from his ropes. I set up a huge network of ropes throughout the entire bird room when I lived in NJ. They could get anywhere in the room by climbing them and Echo played on them upside down all day.. I called him my baby bat.
He was probably just an odd duck though, as he was the quietest bird I have ever had live with me. That or he was screwed up from all the blood to his head

LOL ya i think i'm going to get a senegal, and then see how it goes. I really want a blue crown, but im just thinking of the future. I know senegals are fairly quiet, but we'll see. I also want a eclectus lol. so maybe i'll have atleast one of those before i graduate.

Re: Has Anyone...

They're all really good. I like the Guide to the Well-behaved Parrot, as well.
