    Hiya Cheri!
    Before you let them play together or interact much, I would
    do a fecal exam on your Jenday, considering his previous owner's
    conditions. Find a vet that does birds and call them. I live in
    eastern NC and it only costed me $10 a fecal exam. That way
    you'll find out if the Jenday has any fecal problems (parasites,
    etc). Remember you have another bird and if your bird has any
    parasites and the other bird steps in it's feces, the other bird
    could get it. I don't want to scare you but it could happen,
    especially considering the last bird's circumstances. Why don't
    you visit my website and write me from there and take a look at
    my pets. You can contact me persoanally from there and we can
    exchange other personal info..
    Anytime, Connie
