life span


what is the life span of a Jenday Conure


Answer:

Hi Ruby,

There are many factors that can determine a life span so it is hard to pin down in parrots as may can be very long lived. A lot of sources list up to 20 years, but this is based more on the fact that so many caged birds do not get the proper nutrition and exercise as well as being inbred. With good diet, housing and Vet care, Jendays can live into their 30’s and possibly longer.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,

Brenda
