How are you guys weighing your birds since there is no weigh-in due to tele-check? Anyone using one of those digital read out fish scales? I haven't found one that weighs over 15lbs. Of course there's always the stand on the scale with bird and without, and calculated the difference, but I don't think that is all that accurate.

We did the stand on the scale without and then with the bird. Of course....I had to get one of my skinny friends to do it for me since I maxed out the scale with the bird!! :hysterical:

I did the stand on the scale thing too & it worked. I also still take mine past the sporting goods store that use to check them in. They weight it for me then cut off the head, wings & fan for a local taxidermist. I get $6 out of the parts.

For fish, anyway, I heard that those high-capacity scales arent as accurate at lower weights.

Anyone else hear this? I got one that only weighs 10#.. had it for years and its still pretty dang close.
