Jenday vs. Sun Conure?

I saw a few articles discussing this during my research of what type of bird to get, and they weren't very clear and I didn't have my questions answered. I was hoping you guys could help me .

Can you compare them on:

Noise level
Personality (playfulness, nippiness, etc)
Which is more cuddly and affectionate?

All I know is the differences in physical appearance and that they're both loud birds lol. I just want to know what else sets them apart. Thanks!

Re: Jenday vs. Sun Conure?

sun conure (ours)- quiet if paid attention to, LOUD when ignored/ or if you are a loud person.
ours was quite nippy when we got him but through attention and discipline he hardly does anymore except when he want s to try to push you around a little
he loves to cuddle - gets up by my neck, wuzzles hair, etc... he is sweet.

Re: Jenday vs. Sun Conure?

IMO there the same. I belive there the same species Some will argue otherwise.
But noise level the same. I think suns are more frequent.
Both extreamlly affectionate. And cost the same. Lots and lots of similarities

Awww he sounds like a sweetie pie ! Are they loud if there are other birds? I also have a tiel and a couple budgies, so he'll never really be alone.

Suns more frequent - that is very helpful! And in my experience, I think suns are a little more than Jendays, but I guess it also depends on where you live. They are definitely very close in price. Only about $50-$100 difference.

Really? I've only seen one gold cap for sale in my area, and the lady was selling him for $250. She was also selling a Jenday, and I watched the youtube video she linked in her ad but they didn't look too friendly .

Re: Jenday vs. Sun Conure?

Lol ain't the case always haha. Never look friendly. The whole feed and not play feeders. With my birds I bred and raised. I always spent loads of time with em. And they always loved there new home. Loved people. It seems now those are hard to find.

Yeah, very true. That's actually exactly what they were doing! The man was offering them a piece of apple, the Jenday took a few bites but didn't stick around, the goldcap just tried to get away and didn't want any apple at all!

I think I might want a Jenday. I never heard one scream before so I looked it up on youtube and I found this video:


I can definitely distinguish a sun conure scream without even seeing one. They just have that unique scream, you don't need to see one to know it's a sun lol! But the Jenday that's screaming/squawking is like nothing compared to the sun. It might be a better choice for me since I don't think my family will like the screaming. A Jenday squawk won't bother anyone though.
