African Gray Parrot : Purchase, Acclimation, Care, Diet, Diseases With a Special Chapter
on Understanding the African Gray Parrot

by: Annette Wolter, Rita Kimber, Robert Kimber (Translator)
Paperback - 63 pages

I have read a couple of books on the same subject (African Grey Parrots)
and this so far is the most up to date book with also the most information out of the
books I have read. It has a special chapter on Understanding Grey Parrots that is very
helpful. It is information packed with such chapters as 1. Considerations Before You Buy
2. Buying And Housing A Parrot 3. Keeping And Caring For An African Grey Parrot 4. Diet
5. Diseases And How To Keep Your Parrot Healthy, among other chapters. I also enjoyed
reading about "Partnership Between Bird And Human." It was a unique section. This book is
filled full of informative chapters and high quality color pictures. If you own an African
Grey Parrot, or are looking to own an African Grey Parrot this is a book for you. I bought
this book to research African Grey parrots as pets and this book helped me to decide to
buy one as a pet. Because of this book I am now an African Grey Parrot owner. This book
also helped equipped me to be able to take care of an African Grey Parrot. This is a great

This book is MUST reading for African Grey owners! The information is just right
in breadth and detail. Very important information is covered which bird owners need to be
aware of since African Grays are very intelligent birds. I give a copy of this book to
everyone who purchases a Gray from me!

Keeping African Gray Parrots: by David Alderton
*****4.5 STAR RATING

I found this book to be very informative having just become a "mommy bird" myself.
The author gave great detail of what to expect of an African Gray Parrot; their needs, likes,
and dislikes. The book also covered some very important
safety matters and health issues. Even though I don't choose to house my gray in an outside
aviary, I became engrossed in the section on "housing" which provided many tips and techniques
to creating a safe environment for any bird to inhabit. I thought that, because our Gray was
successfully hand-fed and weaned by us, we knew all there was to know about these beautiful
parrots. This book helped to fill me in with the use of easy to understand wording
and beautiful photographs. If you are thinking about purchasing an African Gray Parrot or, if
you already own one, this book will help you to understand what your pet will need to live a safe
and happy life with you.

Specific to African Gray parrots only. If you want to keep and breed African Grays,
this book is a good resource.
