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.

peachfronted conures who sneer at toys
I might as well admit it. My first Peachfronted Conure, Arthur, loved to play with toys, but the other birds love to sneer at their toys unless there is food involved. They'd much rather destroy a perch or some mulberry browse or a nestbox than a toy.
I've often wondered if it's the difference between a bird who considers himself a pampered pet, and a bird who considers himself a serious adult. Courtney just takes himself entirely too seriously, and the others follow his lead. Toys? He's got a real job. Get a life! Or so I imagine the tiny thoughts running through his head each time he reacts in scorn to a new toy.
