I am excited to introduce my new baby Meyer's whom I've named 'Newton'! Newton won't be able to come home until s/he is weaned but his caregivers tell me s/he is a typical Poicephalus and not showing any outlier characteristics so far, at the ripe age of 6.5 weeks :)

I've been searching for a parrot companion for a very long time. My research lead me to two groups, Pionus & Poicephalus. Pionus, I would have to say are my dream birds, but near impossible to find from reputable breeders in my area so I turned my focus to Poicephalus. I'm very excited to have found a hand-fed and hand tamed Meyers as they too are becoming more difficult to find. The generalized Meyer's personality fits me to a T and I'm super excited to welcome Newton home. Everything is ready for him; now we wait!

Newton is adorable. I have an almost 3 year old Meyers and she is the best. She's super sweet, a little sassy (it's tolerable), pretty quiet and entertains herself with her toys. You're going to love her/him :)

Newton update! The wait is not over but I think he will be ready to come home soon. He no longer looks like a baby dinosaur! I will be having him DNA sexed before he comes home. The outcome won’t matter but It would be nice to know his/her sex since we will be spending the next few decades together :)
