Re: gouldian finches

The costs of Gouldian Finches varies quite a bit based on your
location. In the midwest (I am in IL), I sell my Normal Back
Gouldians starting at $75 - and that is consistent with other
breeders in my area.
As for how long finches live - that really depends on the
quality of care they receive. The "average" is said to be
between 5-7 years, but I heard of some breeders who have
finches 10+ years old.
Hope that helps you out!
