    Weight Health

    In my last thread in spoke about how luke was back to a healthy weight after his antibiotics caused him to not eat. Luke now seems to be making up for all the food he hasn’t eaten on his meds and seems to be stuck at 1.5 oz When they should weigh around 1.1-1.4 oz. He doesn’t seem to get much...

    sick + underweight cockatiel, please help.

    Hello! I have an eight-month-old female cockatiel, Zazie Butter-Noodle :swoon:, and she is currently on antibiotics for an infection(Her poop is watery too, I hope it will be better when her antibiotics are finished).

    Healthy weight for GCC?

    I'm such a worrier. I weighed my 5 month old green cheek today, and she is 57.3 grams. I saw that 60-80 is the norm for them, and I'm assuming she's fine, but I just wanted to check that the number is probably low because she's still young. I'm going to weigh her more over the next few weeks...

    Macaw weights?

    Hi everybirdie, I was wondering what most of your macaws weigh, and how old they are, ect. My Ollie weighed 787g when she was weighed at the vet at the beginning of November, I weighed her today for the first time (scale FINALLY came in the mail), and she's only up to 830g. I was wondering if...

    High quality scale

    Found what appears to be an AWESOME scale! I really hate items made from cheap materials. Looking for scales seemed to be an exercise in futility. All the options on Amazon were cheap, plastic, flimsy looking items. I always prefer industrial grade if I can. Well, I found this awesome looking...
