I would like to get a consensus going on pionus weights. I am always getting confused as there are a lot of different weight charts out there!

was 1 yr old the end of May
was 208 grams at last vet check (I had to get rid of the wooden perch on Peep's scale since it is porous and haven't replaced it yet)

Peep was female and much smaller, even when she was healthy - her largest that I know of was I think 187 at almost 2 yrs old. Everything about her was much smaller - feet, eyes, overal size

Toady, male dusky pionus, has always been thin at 185 g. Hopefully my new vet can figure out why and get him treated for it. My last vet said everything on his tests looked normal and he probably just had a fast metabolism. My new vet thinks he could have some ungoing GI issues that could be causing his weight issues. He's 12 years old.
Kei- most likely female dusky pionus weighs in at 208 grams.

I'd like to get this thread going again and maybe make it a sticky? I'm sure the OP wont mind. :D


I'm so happy to report that BRONSON, Female 7yr old BRONZE WING weighs in at 254!! When she was sick with AGY she was down to 215, her keel bone was very predominant so it was not a good weight for her, I know some BW are healthy at 215. Another good reason for this thread.

Lurch, Male Maxi Pionus.
The one time he held still enough to get a reading he was 250 and he's probably about 7 or 8 now.
Nerd was the same but skinny his whole life and weighed 214 average, he made it to 31 years and was probably older then that as the shop we got him from thought he was 2 in 78 but didn't know for sure.
