Charlie is up from 240 grams to 249 grams since adoption 4 months ago. Yahoo! Healthy diet working!
Wow! Charlie has gained a lot in the last 3 years. He averages 290 now. That is a significant weight difference for an older bird. Lots of veggies are paying off I guess

(vet said that she seemed a bit overweight based on muscle tone and a palpitation of her chest; he suggested an ideal weight would be 180 grams, but I found this report surprising because Thea was mostly flighted until recently and she gets quite a bit of exercise).

Dobby is about 8 now and is a porky 275 or so but he's very active and flys alot so I think he's fine just like Nerd was good at a very skinny 214 average. Lurch made it to average of 260 just before he escaped so yes there is a range of extremes but still be healthy depending on the bird.

My bronze wing boys have never been heavier than 240gr. They're usually closer to 230. 290 seems huuuuge to me perriewinkle. :roflmao: As long as everyone's healthy, there does seem to have a big range of weight difference! :)

200 g (vet thought she was underweight and said her keel bone was prominent, picky eater with some health issues we are currently dealing with)

Remy

Both birds are flighted but Remy is a much more active and proficient flier than Max.

White cap
27 years old.
255 grams
Name: Max
We brought him home as soon as he was weaned at the bird store (closed many years ago, was called 'Custom Parrot Network' in North Bergen, NJ.
Eats pretty much every type of people food. Whatever I eat, he wants some.
Learned to whistle when he was 26.
Talks a little, started when he was about six months old with a simple 'Hi'. I'll have to come back and write down a list. Not as verbose as my gray, but he will chatter for a while when it's 'his turn'.
Quiet, will sit on my shoulder all day long, but will take breaks to go eat, then come back. Doesn't fly much, walks all over the house.
But makes a great guard bird, will make a racket if he sees someone he doesn't know outside the window.
Cage is at front window so he can watch the people go by all day long.
Doesn't like swinging brass rings or swings, but will hang from toys upside down while playing with them
