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.

How to Sex Your Peachfront Conures Just By Looking
Boy or girl Peachfront? A lot of people ask this question. If you really, truly, absolutely need to know FOR SURE, you can have an avian vet or avian testing service run a DNA test. But if it isnít any real big deal, yet youíd like to be pretty sure that youíre right, then I would look at the head. It seems to me that males have longer, flatter crowns. Females have smaller, curvier crowns. Itís a comparative thing. If you have several birds together, you can start to see it. If you have only one Peachfront, and you have never seen another Peachfront, hmmm. Might be a little tougher. Especially since they can be perverse and hold their head feathers in such a way as to disguise the exact shape of their little skulls.
