Monitor your bird's weight and dietary intake to ensure she is getting the right nutrition to keep her fit. Weight is a critical indication of health and wellbeing. This scale is designed to make this important task easy and effective. This accurate scale (+/- 1g) comes with a sturdy wood triangular perch. (There are 3 different sized perches - 3/4", 1/2", and 3/8"- for all sizes of birds.) The perch easily lifts off of the plate so the scale can be used for other purposes. With its three readout options (lbs/oz, grams, or milliliters), you can use this scale to measure small animals, food, or medications, too. It zeros out the weight of objects already on the scale before turning on. It also has a low battery indicator and auto shut-off after two minutes. Plastic base with easy-clean metal platform. Uses three AAA batteries, not included. 7.5" x 5.75" x 4.5" high, including perch.
