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.

the things we do for love

Dale would rather sleep in her nest box. Courtney would rather showboat about how tough he is. Last night, it was cold enough for the heatlamps to come on after dark but not freezing. Sheldon and Ronnie retired for their evening into their snug-as-a-bug nestbox with its cozy heat-lamps. Dale would have gone into her nestbox...but Courtney defiantly announced that it was not cold, and he refused to sleep that close to the heat lamp. If she wanted to snuggle next to her warm sweetie, she would have to sleep out on the perch alongside him.

There have been times when she would just leave him out there to be macho, but yesterday she made the choice to come sit out and snuggle beside him as they slept. Result: Courtney -- and then Dale -- moved to another perch, even further from the heat lamp, so they could sleep pressed together. What's that about? Do old peachfronted conures get hot flashes? Even if they're males?
