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.

a salad experiment

Since I got tired of the Peachfronted Conures making such of a mess of their pellets this summer, I've been experimenting with offering a chopped salad between the hours of three and five. No other food selections during that time. Just the chopped salad. Sometimes it works, and sometimes they just pick out the corn.

Yes, I've seen the chopped salads that are soooo finely chopped that they're almost a pseudo-pellet, because the bird can't pick up anything individually, but I'm not quite yet ready to go to that extreme. The Peachfronts give me hope. Some days they pick out the corn, and some days they pick out the peas, and some days they pick out the carrots, but they're looking good, so I will give them some credit for knowing what they're doing.
