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.

courtship dance

Dale and Courtney are going through the whole courtship ritual. Dale puts down her head, lifts her tail, flutters her wings. Courtney is pulled forward. She dances away. He comes forward. She dances away. He pretends to lose interest. She puts down her head, lifts her tail, flutters her wings. He moves forward again. After awhile, he gets fed up, and they squabble, locking beaks. At least once, however, they have mated in the side by side stance.

Dale has also been "customizing" the nest box. My conures have not bred, although they've laid eggs, ever since I stopped supplying the dark cork for them to chew up. I was too busy and didn't want to encourage them to breed. Hmmm. Should I or shouldn't I? They're awfully "mature."
