Food scales!!
Put them in a bowl and weigh them!
Not the best way but it works!

Depends how big your bunnies are :)

I use digital kitchen scales for my smaller ones (up to about 2kg) as they are accurate to the gram.

I use baby scales for my bigger buns and cats, they're easier to use (designed to hold a baby rather than 100g flour LOL!) but they're not quite as accurate though.

Where did you get your baby ones from? x

I've got baby scales too - they use them in my vet's so they must be pretty accurate. I got them for about 35 off Ebay.

I think they were from tkmaxx ages ago. No idea if they still have them.

I'd have a look on ebay for something like postal scales or flat veterinary or baby scales. I have a feeling Snowy linked to a reasonably priced set recently - try doing a search.

The problem with mine is that they are a curved shape for a baby to lie on its back, so I find the reading varies slightly depending on how the animal is sitting in it :?

Thank you :)

I have been weighing them on kitchen scales by balancing a tray on top...as you can imagine it doesn't work that well!!! :roll::oops:

My baby scales are flat which is handy. I've had the buns weighed at the vets and then weighed them at home and they read the same. They weren't new - I got them secondhand.
