Mixing conures

I want to get another conure, I was wondering if it is ok to mix together all kinds of conure. I currently have a 6 month old male GCC. Im thinking Jenday or something.

Re: Mixing conures

Yes, it's possible, but it's no guarantee that two birds will get along, even of the same species.

Any new bird you get should go through a 30-90 day quarantine with bloodwork, which means it needs its own cage, food, toys, perches, etc.

After quarantine, the two birds can then live in the same room together and you can see how they are in neutral territory.


If you plan on having two conures of two different species sharing the same cage space, then you should make sure that they are the same sex so as to prevent hybridization.

Re: Mixing conures

But, of they do get along after quarantine, and they play nice al day outside the cage, and live side by side cages for a while and never have an issue, it is very much so possible to house them together.

Re: Mixing conures

OK, Im not looking to make a mutant species, I simply want my Honey to have friend. I was told by the breeder as long as there is no nesting box they will not breed or try to breed

Re: Mixing conures

That is unfortunately false information... just make sure that you know both birds sexes if you plan on housing them together, and you wont have to worry!

Otherwise, plan on getting fake eggs in the future or boiling/freezing any eggs that are laid.

Re: Mixing conures

Ok thank you for the info, I will have him sexed so I know for 100% I have a boy before I add a friend to the mix, I am also planning on having a second cage so that there is a smaller cage I can keep in the general area in the house. So I will be able to house them separately until I am sure theyll get along

Re: Mixing conures

I would keep them near each other but in seperate cages after the quarentine period the jenday is bigger than the gcc and I would be afraid the gcc would be hurt.
