Janday Conures are often referred to as Jendeya Conures. It also goes by other aliases like Yellow-Headed Conure and the Flaming Parakeet. Jenday conures have a reputation for being a little more laid back than other conures, but that’s not to say that they don’t enjoy and expect plenty of interaction with their people. Like most conures, they appreciate bird toys that can be chewed up.
A Jenday Conure is quite larger than its Green Cheeked cousin and can reach a size of 12 inches from beak to tail tip.
Like many other parakeets, about half of its long tail makes up its body length. Hence, the illusion that it appears larger than its actual size.
Speech and Sound
Like most conures, the Jenday is persistently noisy, with a raucous call that can disturb those with more sensitive hearing. It’s moderately loud, and shouldn’t disturb neighbors.
Talking Ability Of Jenday Conures
Like most conures, Jendays can get noisy. They make a very loud, shrill and raucous call that makes them a pain in the neck at times rather than charming companions.
In turn, this can make them unfit for apartment homeowners who don’t want to get their neighbors pissed off with their noise.
Naturally, Jendays are not the best-talking birds, but they can learn a few phrases, and do this better than Green Cheeks.
Be that as it may, Jenday Conures are not recognised as charming pets for their speaking ability, but for the undying affection, and tricks as pet bird companions.
Jenday Conures Lifespan
Jenday conures kept in a healthy environment with proper care, and fed a well-balanced diet can live for over 30 years.
However, the average Jenday in captivity lives for an average of 20-25 years. Sadly, many parrots meet early deaths due to illnesses and accidents.
