Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

Like Birdman666 said, Suns and Jendays are pretty much the same with the exception of wing color. They can be very sweet and affectionate, but I agree with javi that there are "better" conure species, although that's obviously very subjective and really depends on what qualities you're looking for. If you want a conure that will talk and be quick to pick up on any training and tricks you choose to teach it, then I wouldn't recommend a Sun or Jenday. The halfmoon and dusky conures already mentioned are good choices as are the larger conures like a Nanday (although I *might* be a bit biased since I have a 1 yr old Nanday that has an excellent vocabulary which expands on a daily basis and catches on to everything very quickly).

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

Yeah there isn't much difference other than coloring each individual bird is gonna have its own personality of course. My Jenday can an occasion be very loud but not very often, he's mostly sweet, cuddly and affectionate. He loves to always be on my shoulder or cuddled up under my neck. He's a quick learner too he's about 3 1/2 months old and is potty trained and already says a few words. When I was looking the gcc seemed to be so much more playful and have so much more personality but that's not the case now, my Jenday entertains all of us with the things he does. Just spend some time with them I'm sure you'll know what the right choice for you is. Good luck in your quest hope you let us know what you choose!

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures

My jenday is also very affectionate and quick to pick up on tricks. She is also potty trained and can do a few basic tricks herself. She does give the occasional scream when she is happy or feeling ignored but she is not anywhere near as loud as other birds I have come across. However, I think personality varies from bird to bird! Once you find a bird that "picks you" it doesn't matter what specific breed they are! good luck!

Re: Sun conures vs Jenday conures



Well, that kinda depends on whose training the conure! The best conure I ever had was my little Sun. The bird inside my shirt.



ALL CONURES make good trick birds... they really do seem to have the tempernment for it, and enjoy the interaction.

I respectfully disagree. But we all have our favorites.

Re: nanday vs jenday ?

Though they're from different conure families, from what I've heard about both, I think they're probably very similar, with a typical basic 'conure' personality, with the differences being mainly between individuals.

I think both Nanday's and Jenday's are some of the prettiest parrots. Nandays are one of my favorite (looks). Roughly the same size, it seems like the Nandays I see look a bit longer shaped in the body maybe? Not a significant size difference.

Re: nanday vs jenday ?

Have never met a Jenday but the nanday I have met was awesome. I nearly got one myself after meeting him.

Re: nanday vs jenday ?

They're both very loud. Jendays are about 12 inches in length and weigh about 125-140g. Nandays are 13-15 inches in length and weigh about 140g. I'm voting for the Nanday.

Re: nanday vs jenday ?

I actually have a Nanday and a Jenday and I love them both of course, but if I had to recommend just one of them, it would be the Nanday. As has already been mentioned, Nandays are a little bit larger and have a slightly different build . Nandays have much more potential as far as talking and learning tricks. They're both considered to be among the loudest of the conures, and my experience with other species is pretty limited, but from what I've actually seen as well as read about the experience of other owners I think it's generally true. Out of my own two, Buddy the Jenday is much louder, but I only adopted him recently and he's still settling into the new environment which might be a contributing factor.
