    Loki the hawkhead is 225g which is quite low for a HH. They are normally up in the 250-275g range but she is also a flier and doesn't like treats so that may have something to do with it!

    Topaz our chunky monkey budgie is a hefty 36-38g while Tootee his little brother is only 28g (but has always been sickly )

    On a side note, you ask the question and don't even give an answer yourself!

    See videos of Loki and the boys here!

    Rosco, when last weighed was 78grams, which is quite high. She's probably down a bit now, need to get her weighed again. She was a little chunky back then.

    Shade weighs around 110g, she's a small Sennie.
    Joey weighs around 125g, which I believe is the average for Red-bellieds.
    Petey weighs around 132g, she's a big Meyer's, though not overweight.
    Piper weighs around 51g.

    Cayenne (sun conure)- weighs 110-115g, usually
    Katana (cockatiel)- weighs 108-115g, usually
    Lovebird (duh) - weighs, 41-49g, or just about 2.5 oz, haha
    Mika (senegal)- don't even ask... I would die trying to weigh her.


    I believe in the big bang theory. God spoke and BANG! it happened.

    Last time I weighed Tanzi, he was 61g. So, he's quite a porker!

    Mateo weighs between 83 and 88 grams. What time of the day do you guys weigh your birds? I'm trying to be consistent here. I think Mateo seems on the light side.
    Mateo (cockatiel), Chirpa (parakeet), Nigel/la (parakeet), Nico (parakeet), WeeWoo (parakeet) and Peri (parakeet).

    Rags stays anywhere from 80-83 grams
    Sweety is usually 89-90 grams
    Spike was almost 80 when we got him and is now up to 82 grams.

    We last weighed our birds on 11/29/08. We didn't weigh the budgies... there is no way we could get them to be still long enough to actually weigh them. I'm including Penny, even though she is gone.

    Karma - Solomon Island Eclectus - 380g (she is actually a little under weight!)
    Poe - Senegal - 125g
    Charlie - cockatiel - 93g
    Claire - cockatiel - 85g
    Dee Dee - Green cheek conure - 70g
    Des - cinnamon green cheek conure - 62g
    Petey - green pacific parrotlet - 35g
    Penny - green pacific parrotlet - 33g

    And the cockatiel babies! We need to weight them again. They look like real birds now!
    1 of 4 - hatched 11/20 - 44g
    3 of 4 - hatched 11/22 - 29g
    4 0f 4 - hatched 11/25 - 17g
    And again, those were their weights as of 11/29/08.

    Last time I weighed Koba it was about 3-4 months ago.. She was 280 grams but has gotten a bit bigger. I wouldn't doubt she's 300 grams at the moment. Small for an Amazon but she'll probably grow a bit more.
