The retirement home for very olllllllllld Finches :). Zebra Finches supposedly live anywhere from 4-8 years. My little ones are about 8 or 9 years of age and still just as active as ever, no evidence that they're approaching the end. Still, being so old I decided that they deserved a bigger cage so off to Petsmart I went and picked up this lovely cage on sale. My Finchies are named Peach and Basil. Basil was named after Basil Faulty of Faulty Towers fame and Peach was named after a freind's dog :) .
