$200 would be fair at 4 weeks for that bird. $500 would be
way too much for a weaned bird with that extensive of
injury. So I would say $300 to $350 weaned. A pet shop would
be willing to pay $400 to $500 max for a 4 week old in
PERFECT condition. Those are pretty accurate numbers so you
have to decide, but $500 at 4 weeks is just crazy.
