Meet Sesame (5/6)
Sesame is looking for a new home to share with the seven other members of her flock! She is a tiny but vocal little Zebra Finch that is ready to go into care with a bird savvy owner, or an inexperienced owner eager to educate themselves and provide the best care possible.
For our long-term residents like Sesame and her flock-mates, we have reduced the adoption fee to a “pay as you can” promotion to ensure that all of the finches are adopted together.
For more information on how to care for a flock of zebra finches, check out these great websites to learn more:
The best sized enclosure for a big flock is a flight cage, or a large aviary, to give them ample room to fly around. This website provides a few good examples of suitable cages for a flock of this size: https://petkeen.com/best-cage-for-finches/
If you are looking to add Sesame and her friends to your home, copy and paste the following link into your web browser: https://spca.bc.ca/wp-content/uploads/BC_SPCA_Avian_Matching_Survey.pdf
Once completed, send the application to firstname.lastname@example.org to apply to adopt her and her 6 friends!
