    $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.
