    Hi Cheri,
    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.
