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.

a quick seed roast for peachfronted conures and other seed-eating birds
Here's a recipe I make whenever I work with fresh pumpkin or winter squash.
Preheat the oven to 3500 Fahrenheit. I scoop out the seeds, cleaning them as carefully as I can to remove the pulp. I then spread them out to dry, even patting them with paper towels to get them really clean and dry. While you are preheating the oven, consider whether you have enough seed to make some roast seed for people. If you do, toss the seed with about 1 TB olive oil and 1-1/2 teaspoons of sea salt. If you are just making the treat for your birds, leave out the salt. Put a single layer of the seeds on a lightly oiled cookie sheet and bake 20-25 minutes...until the seeds are nicely toasted. Cool and serve. You can store leftover roast seed in a glass jar in the fridge and pull out a small amount of the seed for treats as needed.
