Description

Description

Description: Meyer's Parrots for sale (Poicephalus meyeri), also known as the brown parrot, is a species of parrot native to Africa. A Meyer's parrot has feathers in shades of grey, browns and black, turquoise belly, blue rump, and bright yellow markings on the carpal joint of the wings. Most subspecies have some yellow on the top of the head as well. Six subspecies of  Meyer's Parrots have been identified. Meyer's parrots are commonly bred and they are relatively quiet and small and are able to learn dozens of words.

Sizeabout 8-9 inches in length

Lifespan: about 20 years

Temperament & Behavior: Meyer's Parrots can be social birds and can be vocal but to not demand attention like other parrots. It will enjoy chewable toys, rope knots and soft wood. Hand-raised Meyers are generally friendly, affectionate and playful. It's important to familiarize and socialize them with the entire family, or they will bond to one person only. Well-socialized Meyer's Parrots enjoy being the center of attention and generally make great family birds. 

Meyers adapt readily to new surroundings and should be well adapted to many novel experiences at a young age. Adult birds are less adaptable to unfamiliar environments and dietary changes.

A spacious cage that accommodates plenty of toys and still allows your pet room for moving around is a must - particularly for any bird that is confined to a cage for longer stretches during the daytime. Meyer's Parrots are active little parrots that love to climb and play. It is important to make sure that they get 10 to 12 hours of undisturbed sleep a day.

They need to be provided with a roomy cage with the following MINIMUM dimensions: 20" long x 20" deep x 18" high. Ideally, it should be closer to 40" long x 20" deep to 32" high with a bar spacing of 5/8" to 3/4". Since these little parrots like to climb, cages with horizontal bars (at least on two sides) work best as they will allow your pet to climb around more easily. Offering a separate play gym either on top of the cage or as a separate item, will provide a safe place to hang out when your pet is out of its cage.

Breeding: The Meyer's parrot nests in tree cavities. The eggs are white and there are usually three or four in a clutch. The female incubates the eggs for about 28 days and the chicks leave the nest about 60 days after hatching

Diet: Lafeber’s Daily Diet Premium Pellets or Nutri-Berries, supplemented with fresh fruit and vegetables. Choose a high-quality dry parrot mix containing a mixture of canary grass seed, white / red / yellow millets, oats and groats, niger seed, linseed, as well as thistle, anise, rape, sesame and safflower seeds. Some mixes contain dehydrated fruits and veggies, as well as herbs / greens.

DNA Testing  

If there is no gender option listed for a bird on our website, that particular species is 'monomorphic', which means we’re unable to determine gender without purchasing DNA testing. DNA testing is an additional $149 per bird to guarantee preferred gender. DNA testing may add an additional 3-6 plus weeks to estimated delivery time to allow for gender results. See our FAQs for more info.
