    Issues in 24 year old Meyers Parrot

    I have a 24 year old Meyers parrot (since fledge). She is not around any other animals. Not sure if she is coming to end of life or what.. she has NEVER had issues or been sick. About 3 months ago she had an issue with her foot. She was limping pretty badly. I took her to vet and he gave...

    Aggressive Meyers Parrot

    I joined this forum to ask for some help with my Meyers parrot. I got him around 5 months ago from someone rehoming him. The lady told me he’s around 4 years old. I’m having issues with him being aggressive, and I believe it’s gotten worse since I’ve gotten him. He bites when anything makes him...

    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...

    Pictures Anyone use foraging trays?

    Hi all! Anyone else use foraging trays for their birds? This is baby, our Meyers, and I couldn't get this stinker to forage at all. She also doesn't like most new toys I put in her cage, but for some reason she was open to a small dish (it's stainless steel, small, and I think it was meant...

    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...

    Meyers vs Jardine

    So I was set on getting a Meyers. But recently a breeder said that Jardines are fantastic companions too. I've been looking into both and I can see a lot of similarities. These threads are great. But I was wondering if anyone with experience with both can shed some light on which of the two...

    New here :)

    My name is Wendy. I live in Miami Beach. A little over 5 years ago I found a parrot. He is a Meyers parrot. I tried and tried to find the rightful owner, but no luck. The parrot, who I named Coconut is now my pet, who I love dearly. I wish I could find out which breeder he came from because...

    Do Meyers Parrots have issues at sexual maturity?

    I am getting a Meyers Parrot soon and I read about issues at 3 or 4 when they reach sexual maturity. The one I would be getting is a handfed just weaned bird. I read that petting on the back, under the wings, and the beak is breeding behavior. I don't want to start any bad habits before then to...

    So, I thought after Slade (renamed from Cosmo) mauled me at the fosters that it would be quite a while before this would happen. I'm so excited that we're already building our trust bond and it's only been a week!

    Mixed species parrots

    To anyone else here has owned or been owned by mixed species parrots, did you find it fun to figure out what traits the bird had from each species? I've always done this with mixed breed dogs so I guess it's nothing new. Some of the stuff I've picked up with Comso (soon to be Slade), is he has...

    Pictures Meyers won't poop in her cage

    Hi all! I know this has been discussed before, and I've read the past posts and realize that it may be a natural behavior, but I'm going on vacation in a few days and am concerned she'll try to hold her poop so long she'll make herself sick. I'm wondering if anyone else has a bird that won't...

    Spacing out

    Maybe someone here can help me out. Is it normal for a Meyers to occasionally space out to a point they don't/barely acknowledge you? Our first Meyers was special needs so we thought it was just her doing her thing, thinking real hard about her day. But the Meyers we have now, whom we've had for...
