Welcome to the Best Free Peachfronted Conure Information on the Planet

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 second quote from my January 1992 BIRD TALK article, Let's Talk Birds Survey Report: Bird Care Tips:

Bathing birds is often such a fun activity that it hardly qualifies as a chore. "All my conures love water and will go for a bath anywhere any time they can get one," said [BIRD TALK survey participant] Moirene Coyle. When hand-feeding baby conures, Coyle cleans them off afterward so that they will learn early to enjoy water. "They close their eyes when I say, 'Wash your face,' so I can rinse off their faces. They also close their eyes when I say, 'I've got a towel. Dry your face.' They really make it easy for me."
