An endearing personality and a facility for imitating human speech makes the Quaker parrot a favorite among bird owners. Mattie Sue Athan, an expert on parrot behavior and care, advises on training, grooming, diet, cages, and toys for this unique bird. She also tells you how to protect your inquisitive Quaker parrot from household accidents, and emphasizes the importance of reinforcing desirable behavior habits in your pet. New in this edition is a discussion of recently identified anatomical features of the Quaker parrot, plus tips on recovering escaped birds, and background information on Quaker parrots in their native ranges.
Filled with color photos and instructive illustrations. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

What Ms. Athan first did for all parrot owners with "The Guide to a Well-Behaved Parrot," she now does especially for Quaker owners with this book. She clearly explains procedures and principles for socializing, training, and dealing with behavorial problems of the Quaker Parrot. A special section on Quakers and children will be especially helpful to families, and the chapter on "rehabilitation" will be invaluable to anyone acquiring a "second-hand" Quaker.
It's my personal opinion that if everyone who owns a companion Quaker were to read this book and use the principles and methods contained therein, eighty to ninety percent of Quakers who are being given up to rescue or breeding situations would be able to remain in their homes as cherished companions. If you now own or are planning to get a Quaker, this book is as essential as the cage, food, and toys.
