A little about me and why this book. My journey into Cockatiels began with Boogs and Sweet Pea, shown above. I am going down memory lane now to way back in the fall of 1993. This was before there was the abundance of information available today about genetics and mutations. Breeding was a very rewarding experience and each day I looked forward to being around my birds and working with them. Over the years my birds have taught me a lot. In my early years, I read information on mutations, but when working with the mutations I learned that not all the available information was accurate or complete. Most available info was text with no photos or illustrations. Even though there was descriptive text, it left a lot to the imagination, thus leading to wrong identification of birds and/or sexes. In the late 1990's I started to digitally document everything regarding the mutations, and other issues such as health. I started compiling them into collages that contained helpful information written on the collage. I found it more understandable when a person is shown something. The collage will show the birds in more natural poses and several different angles and positions, rather than stagnant glamour or studio shots that have no dimension, or as just a singular representation of the mutation. Thus my birds taught me a lot and it is my time to Pay It forward with all they have taught me. I have always enjoyed teaching and helping others.
