Ollie was fascinated by the scale and after a few weeks, got up on it himself. He is an Orange-winged Amazon and weighs 372gms. Not very different from when I first got him. I think he's on the small side, but perfectly formed! :D



Next was Bobbie. She is a Red-lored Amazon and I knew she was overweight, but was a little shocked to find out she is 448gms. :wideyed:



Chico is a Panama Amazon, disabled and over 50 years old. He is 430gms.



I was wondering how much everyone else's Amazons weigh. :)

My Sam is a 36 year old BFA. he weighs 508 gms. That's down for him from his heaviest at 548. He is a very tall bird, almost 12 inches long, and the vet thinks he is a good weight. He is firm and hefty.

My older female yellow nape is a smallish 400-430. My older male runs around 530. Their female babies are about 460-475 at maturity. Their male babies that I've had are about 510-530 at maturity. Sprout needs to be kept on a diet or she will become very obese very quickly.

Do you think since mine are wild caught that is why they aren't chunky monkeys?

I'll try to pull up my sheet of weights soon and I'll let you know how my guys did. I need to add these weights to it anyway.

Hi Bogdan! You are so good to weigh your Amazon so regularly! How old is he? He's gorgeous!

Blue-fronted Amazons seem to vary a lot in size. I've seen huge ones and tiny ones.

Blue fronts.

MC looks bigger (and does have bigger feet) but Secret weighs more.

I could see one Blue-front in your avatar. :D Which one is your avatar? They are small aren't they?

I read recently that Orange-wings vary in size depending on which area they originate from.

Lucy my yellow nape is 490 and has been in this area for over a year now, vet actually thinks she could gain a few.
Miss Birdy our Orange Wing is 383 and has been steady weight for the year we've had her.

There are differences in bone structure. Some birds are just heavier even if not over weight but will have shorter stockier legs and wings.

Yellow Napes are bigger than I thought! :)
Yay - an Orange-wing! Miss Birdy is similar to Ollie my Orange-wing in weight.

He's adorable and loving to me. Loves full hand skritches on head and neck. Even learned to do a kiss (by touching his beak to the bottom of my chin). To my husband, NOT!

MC literally will charge hubby, even when I'm not home and he lets him out of his cage. If I am home and I'm watching, MC does the toddler routine of I'm tee totally innocent.
