The Peach fronted conure is native to South and Central America. It lives in the northern parts of Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. They are hardy birds that can tolerate a wide variety of climates. These birds have been captured from the wild for as long as records exist. It was only recently that many became domestic pets instead of being kept by scientists or zoos only. This bird prefers tropical areas and forests.
Unfortunately, there is little information available about the exact population of these birds in the wild. Their numbers are not thought to be declining at this time, among pet owners or in their native habitats.
Caring for the Peach-Fronted Conure
If you consider caring for a Peach-fronted conure, you will need to be prepared to spend some time looking after this bird. Peach fronted conures love their toys, and they like plenty of attention from humans, too, so you cannot expect to keep them as pets if you have limited time available to spend with your feathered friend.
Peach fronted conures belong inside the home in an environment just as comfortable as any other pet enjoys, though they can live outside if it is cool enough. You should provide them with plenty of fresh cold water at all times. The ideal temperature for your bird should range between 68 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit during cold months (with cooler temperatures at night) and between 80 and 90 degrees during warm weather.
These birds need plenty of toys because they love chewing on things. Try to provide your bird with plenty of perches and toys, and you will have a much happier bird. Peach fronted conures are known for their curiosity, so if you want them to be satisfied in the home, it’s best not to leave anything lying around that could pose a safety hazard.
Diet and Nutrition
The Peach-fronted conure is a relatively small bird, but even though this species does not grow as large as others, there are still some important things to consider regarding the diet.
First of all, your pet should be fed pellets that contain plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables along with vitamins and minerals. Try to include spinach, zucchini, sweet potatoes, carrots, and blueberries. You should also provide him/her with plenty of seeds such as sunflower seeds, dried fruits, or nuts such as almonds and hazelnuts daily.
Like most birds, the Peach-fronted conure should have fresh water available all of the time; the size of his beak and his small throat means that he will get dehydrated quickly if he doesn’t have access to water.
