The Meyer's parrot is
popular due to its easy-going personality. Described as a "go with the
flow" parrot, Meyer's parrots are not as active or athletic as other
Poicephalus. They are considered more pet birds. The Meyerr's parrot
likes a challenge, so it will interactive toys such as puzzles toys and
foraging toys. Meyer's parrots have the comical, playful and animated
personality of larger parrots, but without the cost, mess or noise
typically associated with bigger pet parrots.
Meyer's parrots are mellow and will
easily interact with all members of the family. They are not great
talkers and are actually considered one of the quietest parrots without
making particularly loud calls. Meyer's parrots' beaks can become
overgrown, so provide plenty of hard toys and wood for them to chew on.
They also tend to gain excessive weight. Provide your Meyer's with a
healthy diet consisting of pellets, fresh fruit, vegetables and greens. They are a good choice for beginning bird owners.
