My Bird does this

Hi,

I am new to this forum. I recently got my bird from a pet store. I was really scarred that he would bite. I dont know whether he was hand fed. But whenever he is on my hand he would like to sleep rubbing his head against my hand. Some he does this like biting. But it does not hurt. Why does he do that?

He's trying to preen/groom you which is a good sign that he likes and trusts you. Albie does this all the time to me when I give him head scritches.

Re: My Bird does this

This is very common to conures. They do it because they love their owners

Mine use to do the same and then all of a sudden she bit me across my fingernail. Must have thought it was a nut.
