    Default Guide to Incubation & Handraising Parrots

    Guide to Incubation & Handraising Parrots
    by Phil Digney

    Pages: 104
    Publisher: ---
    Edition: 1st ed., 1998
    Language: English
    ISBN-10: 095871021X
    ISBN-13: 978-0958710213


    Written by Western Australian aviculturist, Phil Digney, this title covers all necessary requirements needed to successfully take an egg through to a fully weaned chick. Beautifully illustrated with colour images throughout, this valuable title also includes many charts and diagrams and informative text laid out in the easy-to-read format. Contents include Incubation: artificial incubation, meet the egg!, choosing an incubator/hatcher, equipment, handling the egg, incubation, hatching details, problems and troubleshooting, egg weighing; Handraising parrots: the goal, fundamentals, brooders and brooding, formulas, feeding instruments, feeding the newly hatched, growth phase, peak/weaning phase, weaning black cockatoos, pulling chicks, troubleshooting.

    It must be stated before beginning this section that there are many and varied opinions on handraising methodology. It is not the intention of this title to attempt to dissuade any breeder from his or her successful handraising regime. If it is working for you, don’t change it. However, the following information is presented to inform and enlighten the handrearer on the methods successfully employed by the author. The primary principles and objectives set out are in essence the building blocks of all handraising methods. As is mentioned by the author and strongly suggested by the publisher, communicate with other breeders, study their methods and regime and ask questions. Ultimately it is up to the reader to decide on the most comfortable and suitable handraising method to employ. However, I have no doubt that the following information will greatly assist in the understanding and knowledge of handraising parrots.
