How much does your bird weigh?

Im thinking this thread could be a big help to people new and experienced with birds, helping them compare the weights of the same species of bird with different owners. I know I'm always weighing Ice, and it gives piece of mind knowing someone else's bird weighs close to what your bird does!

I'll start

Ice- Green cheek conure
Weight-66 grams

Your turn

My cockatiels- Aero: 130 grams
Cupid: 94 grams

Though cockatiels can vary greatly in weight due to differences in bone structure.



My Tiels
Cupid-Male Whiteface Cinnamon
Aero- Female Cinnamon Lutino

I don't remember everybodies weights but I can start off with Dexter (green cheek) and Pickles (maroon belly x green cheek)

Dex - 62g
Pickles - 51g

That's their normal weights, usually pretty constant

Wow, Pickles is really light. I think average for GCC's is 60-80g.

Pickles is extremely small, he's not underweight. I'm sure it's his maroon belly in him

Tasha was a breeder/show bird and was 124 g..she went back home.

I don't catch my Tiels without reason, so not all weights are upto date.
but it is always good to have basic idea of weights, just in case.
In saying that I see my notes have not been updated for Zinny and Angel. The vet will have their weights from their vet check. But they have not been added to my data file.

Edit: 3/09/2012 Caught Zinny and Angel and have added their weights
Henry 105g
Max 101g
Tinkerbell 89g
Snowy 89g
Zinny 108g
Angel 115g


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.
