Dear Bird Owners,
As our society grows ever larger, so then does the waist line of our birds. Birds that are sedentary do not burn the food they are taking in by moving from dish to dish. The attached file is an interesting observation by an avian vet, chronicling the the numbers of exotic birds he has seen and the average weight of each type based on his observations.
I checked our hyacinth, Lani and he is to weigh 2.5 pounds, 1144 grams. Now I have to get him on the scale. I'll let you know what he weighs. Check the list for your birds weight.
