Kids Are The Future Of Aviculture

As our new president, Barack Obama, says, “Kids are the future.”

Not only are we the future of America, but we are also the future of aviculture! I want you kids to share this article with your parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and neighbors—any older person you know who has a bird. Hopefully, this will teach them how to get more kids involved with birds and aviculture. Trust me, when I go to bird club meetings, I almost always only see adults! It can get a little lonely. But, this all can change if you show this to a trusted adult! So, here we go!

Start a 4H kids club about birds. We have a bird club located in New Jersey, which is trying to put together a kids’ club to meet before the regular meeting. Oh, that reminds me, talk to the president of your local club if you want to start a kids’ club.  A good plan is to meet for an hour or so before the meeting for adults! This way, you have time to do stuff. If you want some ideas, you can get really cool speakers to talk to the club about things like taking care of a bird, which bird is right for them, making bird toys and more! (Keep reading my blogs. I show you how to make a toy each month! That will really help!)

If some of your friends are interested, teach them about your bird. Then maybe they will teach their parents, and so on. I really hope some of you will take some time out of your busy lives to get more kids involved! Some adults get a young bird when they are very old, so the bird will outlive them. Then what?  Imagine this: you’re 75 years old. You have no kids. There is only yourself and your aging cat. Then one day, you decide to get a young, lively bird. Two years later, your life changes and you have no one to take care of your bird! Well, we kids can fix that!  There just needs to be more of us involved. So please try and get some more kids interested! It will really help the bird world in 20 years!

Read next month for some more info! And don’t forget to check out my blog for new toy ideas to make each month!
