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.

generalizations are odious or -- peachfronts are NOT loud just because suns are loud and they're both aratingas, crikey!

Yes, Sun Conures are ear-splittingly loud. One Sun Conure can ruin your whole day. Yes, an entire colony of exuberant Mitred Conures are loud -- although not really as loud as one peeved-off Sun Conure. But Peachfront Conures are not loud. I hate this assumption, which I hear all the time, when I mention that I have Peachfront Conures. It's the word "Conures" that gets 'em every time.

As one guy put it, Oh, yeah, I used to have a Conure, but he was too noisy, and I had to give him away. Argh!!!! He had a Sun Conure. Or a Jenday. One of those species where you know, going in, that the price of the spectacular plumage is going to be a big mouth.

Peachfronts really aren't loud. Now I'm not here to sell birds. I don't want a Peachfront going to anybody who isn't sure. But they're just not loud. True story: We're sooooo much not apartment complex people but there was a time, when we were young, in the era when I had my single pet Peachfront Conure who just lived on my shoulder all day long, and we lived in an apartment complex. Finally, we moved out. The neighbors stood aghast as they watched us pack up.

You had a parrot? How long have you had him?

Um, the whole couple, three years we've lived here.

Gasp of stunned disbelef: We never heard a peep out of him!

Yeah, that's right. And you know why? Because PEACHFRONT conures are not really all that loud. They have a sort of low growly type voice that they use to call to each other.
