weighed the birds again...

so i have to borrow the scale from my fiance's mom so its been a bit. i weighed them last before munch was sick when i was trying to switch the lovies over to pellets.

so i suspected munch has gained since then.

PAST weights:
munch: 56 grams
mango 46 grams
dally: 89 grams
tsuka: 110 grams


NOW, these are their current weights

munch: 60 grams
mango: 50 grams
dally: 89 grams
tsuka: 120 grams








so everyone is where they should be.

tsuka is flighted now, thats why hes gained. hes not so fat anymore, hes solid. mango needed to bulk up a bit, hes our smallest. so its good hes gained. and munch was sick before and was a tad small, now her chest is very round and well muscled and she weighs a good amount lol (moose!) dally is dainty and will always be small. when we got her she only weighed 69 grams so 89 is a good weight for her

Bob - My Libby usually weighs 74 grams. She doesn't LOOK fat, but Maxx weighs about 10 grams less. Do females usually weigh more? (she hasn't been DNA'd, but I've been told she's a "she".)

JoAnne, I am not sure. I know the normal weight should be between 60-80g. Maxx eats like a pig, so I am surprised he is only 66g. He also is constantly on the move so I am sure he burns most of his food off.

Thanks, Bob. At least they're both within range. Libby is a big eater too, and she loves her Roudybush pellets! But like you say, lots of energy, playing all day, so she probably burns lots of calories too. Must just be normal for each of them.
