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.

safflower seed

More from my September 1994 BIRD TALK article:

If you don't wish to use sunflower seed, you can certainly offer safflower. However, be aware that both seeds are grown primarily to produce oil for human consumption and only secondarily as a bird food. Safflower is not a low-calorie seed, as some people seem to think. Like any other oil, a tablespoon of safflower oil has exactly the same number of calories as a table of butter or lard.

Quite frankly, my Peachfronts are whisper-light, and I think a little healthy, natural oil does wonders for them, especially in combination with some natural sunlight. But if your vet says that your Peachfront is overweight, be aware that safflower is not diet food.
