    A Must Have Book if You Are Considering Breeding Small Birds, January 1, 2004

    This review is from: The Complete Guide to Raising Pet Birds for Profit: The Greatest Backyard Business Ever (Paperback)

    This book is full of information on the breeding and raising of parakeets, cockatiels, lovebirds and finches and includes several chapters on the marketing of pet birds, including how to ship birds via the airlines. It covers in detail both cage and colony breeding methods. It is essential reading if you are considering raising pet birds, and should be read cover to cover several times to absorb the information before you begin. Although I have raised birds for several years and consider myself an experienced breeder, I found much information in the book that I can use to make my small operation more efficient and profitable. For the beginner or the experienced, this book is extremely valuable and will enable one to benefit from McDonald’s years of experience with exotic birds. He is quick to point out that while raising pet birds can be a profitable business or hobby, that a person must truly love and enjoy animals if they are to succeed in this business. There is no room for doubt that James McDonald is a true animal lover and puts the welfare of animals at the top of the list. In the closing part of the book he makes references to biblical scriptures, pointing to the fact that we all have a moral responsibility and obligation to the ethical and humane treatment of our animals. I recommend this book for the hobbyist as well as for the serious breeder of pet birds.

    After leaving a 20 year career with the government, I was hoping to find something more creative. While looking for information on buying a pet bird for my daughter , I happened across not only a great book about birds but also a new career. Although I will be starting at the hobby level at first , with the straight forward advice and information in this book I really feel I can expand this to any level. This book reflects 25 years of some one elses hard work and experience. Not only did I find the information on raising birds fascinating but there is a wealth of knowledge for anyone looking to start their own business.

    Excellent book on raising small birds, January 19, 2004

    I was looking for a secondary income when I ran across this book. I found that the pet business is a huge business that I had never really thought about. I have always loved birds and animals and this book had the information that I needed to get started with a small business of my own. After reading the book through twice, I knew this was something that I would enjoy doing. I located a wholesale buyer in my area who agreed to buy my production. The book is well written, very interesting, and easy to understand. After reading the book you can clearly see that the author is an animal lover and is very much interested in the welfare of the birds, since he discourages anyone from entering this business solely for the financial rewards. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to breed the smaller types of pet birds, either for fun or as a small business.
