One thing I miss about the cockatiel I had as a kid was those crests! They convey so much personality, like a dogs tail.

Re: Who loves scratches who's a good boy

Very sweet! Baby doesn't allow head scratches with fingers/hands. He steps up fine though. When we cuddle and preen I use my nose and cheeks. He likes those. I'll sneak in with a finger and he won't have a clue because his eyes are closed and head down. Until he learns an evil thing approaches preening territory...

Re: Who loves scratches who's a good boy

My female does not allow scratches but steps up on demand. She protests with a hiss or two but then is fine lol. The closest I got my fingers to scratching territory is when she makes the hormonal chirps but I don't like to encourage the behavior.
