weighed him! What about your's?

Recommended Posts

Best to feel his breast bone, if its very prominent then he's underweight, if it's hard to find or the puddin' is oozing around the bone then its birdy weight watchers for him! Dusty is a bit puddiny, but losing weight, she's 830gm, she should be about 750gm, with Western Corellas they have a prominent breast bone so it's a bit hard to use that as a reliable guide...hers isn't so she is definately fat! (Like her Mum). The experts say you also need to consider the individual bird as they like us differ in their body "style", you know there are people who are stocky some who are like string beans, naturally.

Well i can feel his breast bone,but it seems 'padded'either side. He really has a good varied diet now,and eats plenty,so perhaps as you say,he is just built like that. I think i will do a weighing session here and there,just to keep my eye on him...
