I have a female Jenday that I have had since she was a
baby. I also have a Blue Quaker that I have had since he was
a baby. They will get along but I would not recommend
putting them in the same cage ever. They should have a
mutual playstand where they can be supervised until they get
to know each other. Each of these birds must have their own
cages as they are both territorial and like to have their
own space at night.
Jendays are chewers. If you have 1 minute hole in a shirt,
the Jenday will find it instantly and make it huge, so wear
old shirts with them. Jendays like wooden chewy toys while
the Quakers prefer the bells.
While the Quaker talks up a storm, Jendays can say a few
words but not very many. They are very acrobatic and mine is
potty trained. I could write a book but.... if you have any
questions, feels free to ask.
