"For the Love of Greys" book


Recommended Posts

JudyGram among others have recommended "For the Love of Greys" as a great resource. The only place i've seen it is on amazon. Currently it is selling for $160 used, and over $200 new. Is this book out of print or just that extensive? I don't know that i'm about to drop another $150-200 on a book when I just spent $1K+ on bird and equipment. I'd love to get a digital copy (kindle) unfortunately it's not available there either.

 

Any info or suggestions would be great. Do any of you have it? How extensive is it? Is it truly "the one book to get" for greys? Is it worth that much?

It's probably not Amazon selling it for that price, but someone in the network of used book dealers that Amazon references when a book is out of print and no longer stocked.

This book is a very good reference and well worth having. But it's not worth prices like that ($160 --- whew!) It's not a big, thick book or anything. It's an 8" by 10" paperback with 135 pages. Much of it relates to breeding birds. But as I said, it has some really good information in it and is well worth having. Keep looking around for a copy at a reasonable price. The cover price is $23.95.

I'm putting mine on ebay if they are going for that price. Haven't opened it in years... :P

 

It is a good basic book, although I do desagree with some things that are the authors opinion. But, of course every book has good, useful information and some parts you just need to decide which path you wish to follow as you learn and go on in working with your grey. :)

It had to have been a misprint for that book retails for like $25 and I am pretty sure I got mine cheaper than that, keep looking for it is out there for a good price.

Like Dan I hardly ever open it anymore but I like having it if I need it for reference but maybe I should consider selling mine if it brings that kind of money, heck I will buy it somewhere for the $25 and sell it making a hefty profit on each copy, yeez.

This maybe a helpful idea if you don't already know it. When I go to buying and ordering off the internet. I go to the thefind.com. then I type in what I am looking for. Then I get a list of everyone and their prices, also coupons are available on most sites.
