Anyone have any ideas about how to weigh a keet.
Cloud is acting normal and all and is eating normally too. It always seemed that she is lighter than Strudel when she comes onto my finger for in/out of cage; but lately she/he seems even lighter. I think I should monitor her/his weight? But can't get him/her to stay on scale long enough for a reading.
Any ideas?

a digital food scale is good. They don't weigh enough to be weighed on a spring action scale. A jewelers scale (or if you know any drug dealers smile ) If she is not clipped, thne I'd say the vets office.

The way my vet did it, is on a digital scale..

1st I held Sweetie aside, and they weighed the empty bird carrier I used.

Then they weighed it again with Sweetie in it, and subtracted the one amount from the other, there was the diff... sweetie's weight.

well a baggie weighs 1 gm. You could stick her in a baggie for 4 seconds to weigh her
