to be a effective and productive thread, lets try to keep this thread as a... RESEARCH THREAD
....an not a idle chit chat thread for future readers who may not want to go thru tons of pages of regular chit chat please...and want only specific info not idle conversation or comments...
i know bebee and connor and MnM and myself have scales but i dont know who else does and its a good way for this forum to have its own little research type of thing we can get involved with so folks can see different birds with pictures(for those with cams) and their weights for refrencing and comparison checks... especially if
.. all photos are of the same criteria...thanks folks....
a good... full side shot of a bird at normal stance (not fluffed or leaning forward or squatting/resting its body on a perch) and a backview would be great
... for those being able to take pictures and remember try not to have the bird in a shot that is in the distance as that will throw off comparisons.
so if you have scales or at minimum, a wellness check weight for your bird/birds please let us know and... include the age of the bird,(baby or adult) species and sex of it at that time.
(no guessed weights) and will need weights at the time of weighing to go with pictures, not just the pictures...
or if you only have wellness check weights and remember the age at that time thats fine too, and if your lucky enough to also have a picture of your bird that fits the criteria too for that time frame
, thats ok too.. but not just pictures as this will not serve as a comparison of weight to bird... and bird to bird.
I dont believe this has ever been done in this forum and it would be a great informational thread...so again please, research information only sticking to the topic
...it will be really great to be... the first ones personally involved in conducting our own little research
..(with no guessed weights)...kindly appreciated..and thanks
and remember to check the accuracy of your scales first by doing a accuracy check using the link in the first post above to do that.
i dont believe the present charts (shown in link with first post) apply, on the average
, with todays birds as they have evolved thru better breeding and food.
