    Meyer's - one or two?

    I have an opportunity to buy either one, or two, Meyer's parrots - just a few months old, I believe, and from the same nest; they've been hand-fed and are weaned by now. I am considering getting a same-sex pair, so that they could give each other some bird company, and also to ease the transfer...

    Can you tame Meyers / Senegal Parent-Raised?

    Hey guys, I’ve got the-opportunity to maybe get a meyers parrot but has been parent raised ? It’s about to come out the nest - will this bird come with problems that won’t want to be tammed etc ? ( really would love a meyers ) or to go for a 5 week old hand raired Senegal parrot ? Any help...

    Parent-raised Poicephalus

    Hey, guys! I'm doing research on different Poicephalus species as I'm interested in getting two parent-raised ones in the future. I'm still not sure which species but so far I'm leaning towards Meyer's or Senegals. They're quite hard to come by in my country so I may have to order them through a...

    Sleeping Pattern

    Hi everyone, I am owning a Meyer's Parrot for about a couple of months now. It actually just flew inside my room and decided to just adopt it because I failed to find the owner several times already. I am new to bird forums in general but I have observed his behavior quite some time now. So...

    Boyfriend’s Meyers parrot is driving me insane.

    This is quite long and ranty, so I apologize. I’m just at my wit’s end here. His name is Fred and my boyfriend thinks he’s about 7 or 8 (got him from a pet store about 5 or 6 years ago so he’s not completely sure). My boyfriend and I have been dating for about a year and a half, and we haven’t...

    Looking for a Senegal or a Meyers

    Hi everyone! I’m a mom to my rescue Senegal Lily. I also had a rescue Meyers parrot Tuki who had passed several month s ago and left a big hole in my heart. I still cry thinking of him.

    Parrot For Student??

    Hi all, I'm interested in getting a Parrot soon and I'd like all your suggestions! :) I have owned Parrots before, but unfortunately had to give them up when I moved here (to Ireland) from South Africa. I had a Congo African Grey (female) and Sun Conure (male). I lived in a freestanding...

    Meyer’s Parrot

    Hello! You may recognize me from the “Pionus as a first bird thread”. After reevaluating my lifestyle, I have decided to steer away from Pionus, and I started getting interested in poicephalus, specifically Meyers parrots. Meyers parrots were one of my first choices, and i consider them to be a...

    I need some help. . .

    To preface, it's only been a week and a half since I adopted Slade, and I know we are definitely still getting to know each other and I don't expect it to be sunshine and roses from a traumatized bird, I just need some advice. So, I'm usually pretty good at reading body language from birds...

    Meyer's Parrot

    Hi everyone! I'm still new, since I'm a shy person usually but I may be adding a third bird to my flock soon, a meyers! I was just wondering what everyone's experiences are bringing a meyers into a flock? My other two aren't attached to each other at all, just kind of put up with each other. I...

    Aggressive Meyers parrot

    Hi! I have a Meyers parrot named James who is very aggressive. He is 9 years old but we've had him about 4-5 years. In all this time, he has been very aggressive with us and I don't understand why. I'm the only person he actually let's touch him and hold him but he does try to bite sometimes...
