Question Weight Scales for Budgies

I would like to purchase some scales for my budgies so I'm able to monitor their health, whether they are eating too little or too much.
I'm not sure what to get and whether it would be good..

Below are the following that I think may work fine??
Would any weight scales work out fine or are there particular ones I need to look for? Does it have to be kitchen scales or can it be scales for jewellery etc? I don't want to look for expensive ones as I'm already purchasing other things and I dont think my mum will allow me to buy things too expensive.

What do you all think?
Sorry for asking this but I'm just unsure. :/

Hello, it is a great idea to have scales and regularly weigh your budgies. Another idea is to actually record it. it is a valuable tool if you have to go to the Avian vet for whatever reason.
Any type of scale is fine as long as it registers in the small gram weight.
No need to feel like you need to apologise for asking questions that is why we are here to help out if we can .

I'll now know what to look out for now.
And yeah, great idea to record it! I'll make sure to do that thanks! ^^ I'll just find a small booklet here in my drawers (I have a ton haha) to record it especially, thank you so much for replying and that advice! )

Any of the digital kitchen scales will work out just fine.
It doesn't have to be expensive.

I actually use a pocket sized digital gram scale, and it works perfectly. I used to have one of those perfect polly toys, and, well, the birds hated that thing. So I got rid of the toy, but kept the perch from it and I now use that on the gram scale to weigh my flock in the morning.

I just use a kitchen scale as well. I put a bit of millet on it, set it to zero, and wait for one of them to go on. Sometimes it takes a while, and the scale keeps turning off which is SUPER frustrating! But eventually they go on... At the same time. Lol! No, seriously, it's much easier if you have hand tamed birds.

Good luck!
