I've lived with Peachfront Conures Aratinga aurea for 30 years. I've bred 'em, trained 'em, even visited Bolivia to observe them in the wild. For more about me, click right here.

I just got a message on Twitter from someone whose Peach-fronted Conure turned 25 years old in April. Courtney and Ronnie, the first Peachfronted Conures I bred myself, just turned 24 years old on April 16 -- and they seem to be going strong.
This is the first time I've heard from anybody who owned their Peachfront longer than I have, so it's great news and gives me hope that my birds aren't just unusual. I'm very encouraged that this species is potentially very long-lived despite being one of the smaller Aratingas.
Here's a link to my 2012 article, where I estimated the lifespan of Peachfronts to run from around 18 to 30 years: How Long Do Peachfronted Conures Live?
