I do not catch my birds just to weigh them, unless I feel there is a problem.
I have to use a net to take them out of the air as they are free flyers. And pandemonium breaks out as soon as they see the net.
They settle down quickly after, in fact just a few hours later you would not know.
They are little drama queens.
Anyway in saying that I do keep an eye on weights,as I do feel it is one very important thing in bird keeping.
I.E. When there are babies around they will be weighed all the time. New birds coming in get regular checks.
A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.
