Angel Appeal - Guess The Weight Of The Bird
« on: November 26, 2011, 07:04:56 PM »

To help raise some funds for the Angel Appeal we would like you all to guess the weight of Pampas - our new ammie.

I weighed her today and took a picture of the reading on the scales.  The person who guesses the correct weight will win a platform perch, a normal perch and a parrot toy.

So guesses are 50p each and you have to guess to the nearest gram - no point whatevers please.   :biggrin:

I will keep you all updated with who has guessed what weight and everyone must choose a different weight.

Here's a couple of photos of Pampus on the scales for you to look at too   :biggrin:

Good luck everyone
