Species Specific - Jenday Conures
The coloring of Jendays is just a step below the Sun Conure. The head is bright yellow and gold with vibrant orange blending around the eyes and cere. The yellow and lighter orange of the head and neck area blend to a rich orange on the underbelly. There is a deep blue on their flight feathers and some on the tails. Their backs and outer wings are a deep rich green in color. Though not known for their talking ability, these beautiful birds will usually speak a few words. They are very playful whether they are playing by themselves in their cage with their toys, or playing with their humans. They love to cuddle and will often snuggle under your chin and stay there as long as you will let them. They love to play with toys while laying on their backs as well as sleeping that way also. Jendays love to chew on things and should be given lots of toys of different textures to keep them happy and a large cage to accommodate them. They also love to make "birdie soup" in their water dishes so you may have to change their water often or add a water bottle to their cages. Jendays love to bathe. Most love spray baths but they will splash happily in their water dishes also. If weaned onto a wide variety of fruits and vegetables when they are babies they will be good eaters throughout their lives.
