Dr. Alessandro D'Angieri, noted Brazilian physician and aviculturist, takes us on an adyssey through the breeding and genetics of these fascinating and popular birds with this well written and beautifully illustrated book.
With over 215 full-color photographs and drawings, The Colored Atlas of Lovebirds is a must-have for every Agapornis enthusiast. It explores the unique behavioral patterns of these African parrots from "dating and courtship" to "marriage" and "homosexuality." Useful techniques for breeding these birds are also discussed, followed by a simplified layperson's explanation of the complex laws of genetics which account for the many variations and mutations of lovebirds that are mentioned and shown in full-color in this book. Substantial mention is made of the many mutated forms of lovebirs such as Peach-face, Masked, Nyasa, Black-cheeked, and Fischer's that are now available.
