Quality scales with perches.--- Scales are invaluable to bird
breeders. However, they are also very important in the home. They allow for
keeping accurate records of a bird's weight on a regular basis. Knowing the
"regular" weight is a key to keeping birds healthy. The early signs of illness
in birds is weight loss in small and ongoing amounts. This kind of weight loss
cannot be detected by just looking at a bird. Birds also hide illnesses until
they become too weak to be able to continue to do so. In nature, the weak and/or
sick birds are kicked out of the flock to keep predators away. ----
With a scale, weight loss does not go unnoticed and illness can be spotted much
sooner. Adult birds should be weighed at least twice a month and of course,
young birds once or twice a week. Therefore, owning an avian scale is a great
advantage to every bird owner.
There are two way to monitor a bird's general health. One is by examining its droppings for irregularities, and the other is with frequent weighing. This compact gram scale is great for tracking the weight of smaller sized birds. Max amount of weight is 250 grams. No batteries required.
