These fascinating birds are green as they are found in their native Australian environment, but selective breeding in captivity has resulted in a stunning variety of colors. Here is virtually everything a prospective parakeet owner needs to know about keeping one or more of these birds.

All books in this series have high quality, full-color photos, instructive line drawings, and run to an average of approximately 140 pages or more.
