    Congrats to you on your new friend. I think it is wonderful
    that you adopted an adult bird. Sounds like you got yourself
    a real sweetie! Just keep handling him and everything else
    just like you are already doing. Offer fresh broccoli,
    pasta, anything healthy you are eating...While you are eating
    something in front of him, give some to him, and eat
    together...It will reinforce a positive relationship between
    the two of you. It sounds like he feels right at home with
    you already..:)
    Meyers tend to be very sweet birds in general. Keep up the
    good work and keep us posted on your progress!
