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.

snuggle bunnies save the day

I just now discovered that Sheldon and Ronnie's heat lamp wasn't working. Oopsie. It was already down to 45 degrees, but they were just fine and had no complaints. I think it helps that those two love to cuddle together in their nestbox at night, although they were already out and playing in the cold sunny day by the time I got up. Anyway, all fixed now...a good reminder that if a freeze might be expected, it's always wise to double-check your heating set-up. I'm sure glad I did. Peachfront conures can obviously be hardy birds that can be acclimated to cooler temperatures, but there's no use testing their limits when we can keep them all nice and cozy.

As I write, the two of them have scrambled back on the perch to cuddle together near the heat lamp...so even if they don't necessarily need the supplemental heat, it's obvious that they enjoy it.
