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 am always seeking Peachfront stories, photographs, and experiences. Got some? Tweet me! I'd love to host a page of your Peachfront Conure stories, photographs, and experiences. I will always give you full "guest entry" credit if you want it, and I can also do an anonymous hosting if you prefer that.

peachfront conure bath time
Peachfront Conures love to bathe. You can stimulate bathing by giving them a nice shower from a clean spray bottle that has never held anything except water -- no fertilizer or other garden chemicals. You can even use the garden hose but you have to let the water run a few minutes to clear out any bacteria that might be growing in the lining of the hose. Also, be aware of the temperature. In my area, the water coming out of the hose in the afternoon at this time of year is HOT water.
Another way to get Peachfront Conures to bathe is to put an inch or two of clean, cool water in a dog dish. It's so much fun to watch them get right in there and splash around in their private pool until all the water is gone.

Don't run out of Zupreem fruit-flavored pellets -- the pellet of my long-lived twentysomething Peachfronts. And don't forget the toys, either.:
