Which conure is this ????

Can any one confirm which type of conure is this ?
My opinion is that this is jenday conure.
But the person who is selling , is insisting it is a sun conure and he says he is 45 days old.

What is the difference in jenday and sun? Behaviour? Taming ability? Or any thing else.

Me and Abdur Rahman want to have this , and we have plans to trained him for free flights and some other trick's like rollover , jumping , puzzle solution etc..

Can a jenday conure do this all if trained in a proper way????

Re: Which conure is this ????

Well, it's certainly not a Sun conure and I just searched up what a Jenday conure looks like and that seems like a Jenday..

I think I Jenday can do the tricks you mentioned if trained properly but I suggest you don't free fly the bird. It's very dangerous for medium sized birds since predators are more likely to go after it than a Macaw..

Re: Which conure is this ????

Jendays and Suns look and act very similarly, especially when young.

Take a look at this picture, Sun vs. Jenday (adults)

Sun


Jenday



Both Suns and Jendays will have green on the wings when young, and as they age, Suns will lose the green and it will molt to yellow. The Jenday will never develop yellow on the wings, they will always stay green, and they develop a red/orange chest and usually distinctive ring of orange around the eye but otherwise stay yellow on the face.

The Sun will generally gain more red around their faces as they age and the yellow comes in. They have basically pretty similar personalities and trainability will be exactly the same. My very first hand fed bird was a Jenday Conure and he was the best.

There is also the possibility of a hybrid - as in a Sunday (Jenday and SUn conure mated to have babies) and these birds will look to be a combination of both -- green on wings but may develop a bit of yellow on the shoulder.

IN this case, I think you have either Sun (still very young and has all its green) or a Sunday hybrid.

Re: Which conure is this ????

Any parrot can learn recall, rollover, jumping, puzzles, free flight, etc. I've seen both Alexandrines and cockatiels do all those tricks. And some parrots may never learn anything past 'step up' - it's based on the individual.

At 45 days old, you'd be buying an unweaned parrot. I'm sure you're already aware of all those risks.

Re: Which conure is this ????

It could be a Sun Conure or a Jenday and you have to wait untill it molts it's baby feathers before you totally know. My guess is it's a Sun Conure. A Sun Conure can be trained to do almost anything any parrot can be trained to do. They may or may not be able to talk... Suns and Jendays aren't known for their speaking ability but sometimes do talk.

Re: Which conure is this ????

baby suns have lots of green on them most the time. Could be a sun. Could also be a hybrid of the two, a Sunday.

Cockatiels rolling over?! Ducky HATES being upside down. Iíve never seen a cockatiel that lays on their back. Where did you see that? Iíve heard that itís simply not a natural behavior for cockatiels as it is for other species like caiques and conures. But then again, Kermit is a conure and he also hates being on his back even though theyíre known for it. So I guess every bird is different.

In general though, cockatiels can do just as many tricks as other parrots. In my opinion, free flight is way too risky for a small bird.
