No, No, No. They are not old or used. They are pre-owned. All pre-owned birdhouses are given our 20 point inspection for levels of patina, rusticity, age. We check the holes, roofs, and foundation and have given these birdhouses our five star rating. These models were previously owned by birds who have either migrated due to dot.com layoffs, worked for Arthur Anderson or Lehman Brothers and soon to be AIG or have been evicted due to subprime predatory lending. Call 510-827-5414 to report cases of abusive lending practices regarding your birdhouse.
