Help with Meyer's Parrot!!

by Luke

I have a female Meyer's parrot that is about 10 years old. She has recently began pecking at the side of the cage and making a tremendous amount of noise.

I will tell you that she used to get a lot more attention than she gets now. The kids are bigger and the schedules are hectic. She has her cage cleaned once a week and she gets fed and watered on a regular basis.

She just keeps making this terrible pecking noise on the side of the cage, to the point I almost released her into the frozen Wisconsin weather this morning. LOL

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.

i have got a 9 year old female meyers parrot . and even in the day time in your not in the same room as her she will scream soo loud she will blow the house roof of .

tips :
* leave the tv on .
*also if you give her a bath , she will feel relax and go to sleep for a while . so that a way to keep her quite.
* do you leave her out of the cage ?
* maybe toys .

also make sure even if you cant spwnd the same amount of time as before but when you do , show her you care for her and love her .

i had the same problem with my bird .

also the pecking on the cage is she's expressing her anger . you should try some of the tips otherwise she might start to get aggressive because meyers have none to attack , if not given attention .

thanks for reading

Hi Luke,
Your little Meyers is trying to get your attention. Try to give her some one on one time. Give her more toys.

I am not an expert but it seems like she is bored or lonesome. I leave the TV on for my birds, change the toys around etc.She is definetly trying to get attention. I wish you well.
