Pia, a Finch's Rescue Story

By Delayna Jane Myers

Pia the zebra finch came from a large rescue of 177 finches in 2022. The birds were found in horrible filth and neglect, with an ailing owner who was unable to maintain their care. (A photo of some of the 177 finches in their aviary is at right.) It was heartbreaking, and Mickaboo had to act fast. Many of the birds were deformed, sick, or injured and some of them were already dead. The birds were sorted and administered veterinary care. Thankfully, Pia survived and was adopted into a sweet home. But that wasn't the end of her story... View in a new window

I`m plucking a lot less now, and I`m getting a lot more attention too!   Read More...
