Jenday Conures Breeding

Beginning bird breeders have asked us what the best sort of bird breed is.

Normally, this is determined by their expertise and the amount of money they have to invest. Being a hobbyist bird breeder may be costly, and it requires a significant time commitment. The time commitment will be the same regardless of the sort of birds you want to raise.

Cockatiels are perhaps the cheapest and simplest birds to produce and hand feed in terms of cost.

However, if you want a simple to breed bird that will pay for itself, we recommend Jendays. They reproduce rather readily and are known to breed all year. They deposit three to four eggs each clutch and are often excellent parents.

Breeder pairs are easily accessible. A reliable pair will normally cost between $400 and $500. Baby Jendays are priced in the $300-$500 range, similar to medium-priced Conures. Pet retailers will often purchase these birds from amateur breeders, but don’t expect to earn a lot of money… they demand wholesale pricing. Selling at bird shows or even advertising in the newspaper is a much better option. Customers will seek you out!

A hand-reared baby Jenday is one of the most friendliest and lively birds available, in my view. This is why they are so popular.


Jendays are prolific breeders. They will reproduce at any moment, but the circumstances must be favourable. They don’t like it when it’s too hot. Because baby Jendays fare badly when the temperature rises beyond 90 degrees Fahrenheit, the parents usually cease mating in hot weather. They may reproduce up to four times each year. To encourage this, you must remove the kids after a few weeks and begin handfeeding. Fortunately, Jendays are rather simple to hand feed (with proper training). A Jenday infant is typically weaned after 10 weeks. This may be cut down to 7 weeks if the parents undertake the most of the care. During this stage, you should try to handle the bird as often as possible in order to get the young accustomed to human contact. However, this reduces the number of clutches every year.

Jendays might be tough to sex. It is advised that you run a DNA text to confirm you have a pair. Also, be certain that you do not get a hybrid conure. Hybrids are ones that were produced by breeding a Jenday with a Sun Conure. They will not get along with a pure Jenday.


The bigger the cage, as with any breeding pair of birds, the better. It is advised that they have a 4 foot long flying cage, however many individuals cannot provide this much room unless they are rearing them in an outdoor flight cage. A 24″x24″x36″ frame will suffice. There are several excellent cages that are sturdy enough to accommodate a breeding box connected to the side.

The breeder box is a 12″x16″ square box. Jendays had a habit of throwing their bedding out of their boxes, so we lined the interior with wire mesh. This seems to be helpful in preventing it.

Once everything is in place…

Simply sit back and let nature do its thing.


Make sure your breeders are getting a balanced diet. Calcium is essential if you want to breed them all year. Make sure there are plenty of fruits and vegetables accessible. They’ll be eating a lot more once the babies come! So make sure you have a sufficient quantity of food. We strongly suggest pellets since they provide your bird with all of the vitamins and minerals it need.

If you haven’t done your homework, don’t try to hand feed your baby. It’s not enough to read about it. It is advised that you get hands-on experience by visiting another breeder or an avian doctor. This is where your local bird groups can help you. Their members will gladly take you “under their wing” and teach you how to hand feed. We’ve done it many times before.
