Preening fun....

Green Cheeked Conure called JellyBean
JellyBean (my 2 year old GCC and first bird) is now about mid-way through his molt! Every evening we sit together and I preen his head - he turns it every which way with his eyes closed to make sure I reach all the spots; and if I get it wrong and preen an early pin feather - he lets out a little screech and holds my finger with his beak (never bites).. He has even started letting me preen his tail.. Yesterday we were together messing with his feathers for 30 mins!! Is this weird?? Should I let him manage this himself? Him being a grown bird and all that :)
