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.

My aviary Peachfront Conures are usually pretty easy for the bird-sitter to care for, since they amuse each other and don't need the intense personal handling required by a single pet. However, even if they're aviary birds, consider training them to step on and step off a hand-held perch on command. Why? Because even the sweetest, best-behaved aviary Peachfront can sometimes get out of the flight, and then she's sitting outside of the flight looking in, wondering to herself just how she got separated from 1) her sweetheart and 2) the food and water dishes. On one occasion, the bird-sitter could not figure out how to return the escapee to the flight. So he had to place separate food and water dishes outside, until I returned from vacation and could coax the Peachfront back into the flight. It actually wasn't that hard, since she wanted to come back. But it was a good reminder that we need to teach BOTH the bird and the bird-sitter how to use the step-up onto the perch command, so that the bird can ride in style to the place where she belongs.
