    Sun Conure x Jenday Conure Mix

    Hi Everyone.

    We have been raising a baby ''sunday'' conure (sun x jenday mix) since he was 4 weeks old at the pet store I work in. I have become quite attached to ''Tino'' and really want to bring him home.. but I need to know more about conures. I own a cockatiel already, would they get along? I wouldn't cage them together, of course, but maybe they could be play mates?

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Re: Sun Conure x Jenday Conure Mix

    it's possibe, but there are no guarantees. personally, i am really enjoying our jenday. and we eat as a flock- coby (conure), muttonchop (tiel), my wife & i. they also come out of their cages together, but are not what i consider buddies. they have separate play areas.

    but it's totally do-able. there will be inevitable jealousies (on both sides), but that's what happens with all kids when a new one comes home!

    let us know how it goes!

    Re: Sun Conure x Jenday Conure Mix

    I have 2 teils and a sun. Like Daniland said they get along but aren't buddies. Jack (sun) would really love to be buddies with the teils, he is always trying to preen them but I think the teils see that big beak coming at them and they run away. Every once in a while Apache will let Jack preen him but we have to watch closely.

    That's exactly how my tiel, Sophie, is with Bartok. I think he is also too "in your face" for her. But, she tolerates him. If you have them out together, keep a close eye on them and introduce them slowly.

    We have a Sunday & a Sun that get alone wonderful, but I think that everybird is different and you just can never tell what may happen.

    Thumbs up Re: Sun Conure x Jenday Conure Mix

    I just brought home a new Sun Conure and I already had a tiel. The two of them are getting along better than I thought they would. I suspect it all depends on the birds though. I think I am lucky. They are best buds but I don't have fighting. I have toleration and I am happy I got that much.
