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.

How to Sex Your Peachfront Conures Just By Looking

Boy or girl Peachfront? A lot of people ask this question. If you really, truly, absolutely need to know FOR SURE, you can have an avian vet or avian testing service run a DNA test. But if it isnít any real big deal, yet youíd like to be pretty sure that youíre right, then I would look at the head. It seems to me that males have longer, flatter crowns. Females have smaller, curvier crowns. Itís a comparative thing. If you have several birds together, you can start to see it. If you have only one Peachfront, and you have never seen another Peachfront, hmmm. Might be a little tougher. Especially since they can be perverse and hold their head feathers in such a way as to disguise the exact shape of their little skulls.
