Description

General chapters discuss housing, feeding, breeding, as well as the numerous plumage and pigment details on the colours and mutations in these species. Chapter on health and diseases is written by an avian veterinarian. Individual chapters present each species including their respective mutations.

Dr Alain Campagne has been keeping birds since the 1970s and since 2000 has been seriously involved in the breeding of Neophema and Neopsephotus species. He is one of the growing number of 'modern' aviculturists who have embraced the internet and participate in international forums. These global discussions have evolved and expanded with the internet and have been the impetus for the universal naming system for parrot mutations now in widespread use around the world.

The early sections of the book provide all the basic information which any new breeder of Neophema and Neopsephotus species. Avian veterinarian Dr Bob Doneley has contributed a thorough Health and Disease section with plenty of information specific to these species of parrots. Dr Campagne then discusses pigmentation, mutations and genetics, in general terms, so that the reader can understand what the different names mean and how they produce their colours in different birds.
