The NCA recognises that
bringing new fanciers to bird keeping is essential to the long term success of this
marvellous centuries-old hobby. The Welcome to Bird Keeping booklet has been
produced by the NCA in January 2010 and updated in July 2013, with this in mind. It is a
hobby that can be enjoyed by people of any age, background and pocket.
The booklet, 16
pages in colour, describes some of the things that need to be considered
before taking up the keeping of birds, whether that be a single pet bird, a
mixed garden aviary, or a collection of exhibition birds, and is essential
reading for those interested in or proposing to take up bird keeping.
Excellent photographs illustrate some of the birds that have been kept and
bred in captivity, but by its nature cannot illustrate all the different
types of bird kept by enthusiasts all over the world, but especially in
Great Britain. To obtain your free paper copy please send an A5 size
