    You could use a baby scale. I use a kitchen scale, and a lightweight box that holds the chick(en), and I zero the scale to the empty weight of the box.

    Use a spring scale. Hang scale at a canvieniant hight. Secure the birds legs together and hang it upside down, by it's legs, from the hook on the scale. [​IMG]
