Jenday Conures are a brightly coloured medium-sized bird. They are linked to Sun Conures since they are both members of the aratinga conure family. They are primarily green, as are many Conures. They have an orange front and a yellow head. Their tails are usually tipped in red or blue, and their wings are usually tipped in blue. A white to light grey ring will form around their eye. Their feet and beaks are also black. They are truly a colourful bird!
Suns, Gold Caps, and Jendays are thought to be members of the same species, rather than three distinct species or sub-species. They are the same bird, only in various colours depending on where they come from.
Jenday Conures are native to South America, where they may be found mostly in Northern Brazil and Northeastern Argentina. They are simple to breed and quite popular among bird breeders.
Jendays are a really entertaining bird. They are incredibly sociable and do well with children if reared as babies. They like being handled and are readily taught.
Jendays are a medium-sized Conure, measuring 10 to 12 inches long and weighing 100-180 grammes. They have a lifetime of 20-30 years if properly cared for.
Jendays, like other Conures, are rather vocal. They employ a loud and violent scream to get your attention. They can also communicate, although in my experience, they only speak a few words. They are not known to be excellent talkers, but if worked with everyday over a lengthy period of time, they may become good talkers.
Jendays are a fun-loving bird that enjoys being handled and played with. It is advised that you play with a very young Jenday on a daily basis. Allow him to sit on your lap as you watch TV and play with toys or wooden blocks. This connection will make him incredibly nice and tame.
Jendays’ nutrition is critical, and they have a few special needs. They are prone to Conure Bleeding Syndrome, which is caused by a deficiency in Vitamin K. This ailment hinders the bird from clotting their blood, resulting in profuse bleeding.
This is easily avoided by giving your bird lush green veggies like broccoli, brussel sprouts, and spinach. Some breeders feed their birds parsley leaves, which are strong in Vitamin K. You may make some homemade foods with wheat bran for them to consume, or provide some chopped kiwifruit and bananas. Jenday Conures are now one of my favourite birds, since I now have a reason to get rid of the yucky vegetables that my wife attempts to give me. They wind up in our bird’s food bowl!
Shredded beef or noodles, bean sprouts, and hard boiled eggs are additional favourites. Some of the breeders we know believe in giving sprouts to their Conures, but I’ve never tried growing them myself…this is one of my future study topics.
As always, make sure they receive adequate calcium, particularly the females. You won’t have to worry about this if you give your bird a pellet diet supplemented with fruits and vegetables. Pelleted diets include all of the vitamins and minerals that most birds need, and you just need to supplement those things particular to your bird (like Vitamin K)
Jendays will need a few more upkeep tasks than other birds. They are excellent fliers, and since they have a lighter body than other conures, they will fly until you conduct substantial wing clipping. You want the bird to be able to glide to the floor without being wounded, but you also don’t want it to fly away. With Jendays, you must teach yourself on how to trim wings or anticipate many vet visits. They won’t go into trouble if they can’t fly!
While Jendays are vulnerable to many common avian ailments, they are generally healthy and simple to care for. You should not have any severe health issues if you watch their conduct and search for warning signals of difficulties.
Jendays are known to like chewing. If you let them out of their cage, you must keep an eye on them to make sure they don’t destroy your furniture or woodwork. Provide them with items to gnaw on within their cage. Colored wood blocks or sticks are the most prevalent. Jenday had a lot of fun destroying colourful popsicle sticks and fast converting them into toothpicks. They are also fond of toys that generate noise. Make your own using bells, beads, and bottles if you’re feeling crafty.
