The NCA recognises that
bringing new fanciers to bird keeping is essential for the long term success of this
marvellous centuries-old hobby. The Welcome to Bird Keeping booklet
was 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 pockets.
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. It 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 we cannot illustrate all the different
types of bird kept by enthusiasts all over the world - especially in
Great Britain. To obtain your free paper copy please send an A5 sized
