CAVY (Guinea Pig)
What you can do in this project:
- Learn proper care, handling, feeding, habitat set-up, and how to train/teach tricks to a guinea pig
- Gain knowledge and skills for showing cavies (this is for interest only; cavies are not shown at the OCF)
- Observe cavy behaviors and interactions with other cavies
- Share cavy information and resources with others as you bridge new friendships
Cost: Cost needed to procure a cavy (usually $20-$50), cage, and grooming tools
Equipment Needed: Cavy, cage, feeding, and grooming tools. Project leaders can assist youth in procuring a cavy. Youth may begin the project without a cavy, but should obtain one by March.
This project needs a leader! Interested in being a 4-H project leader call 262.284.8293.
