What chunk of body do parakeets approaching individual pet?
Different animals like being pet on different parts of body. What does parakeet like, lead, belly, .?
Every bird is different! I breed parakeets, and cockatiels (see avatar with my up-to-the-minute baby!), and all of my birds like this, or aversion that.
Angel, my male top breeder parakeet, loves his head to be scratched! Even though sometimes he flinches and moves away, he get used to it. He also likes his back to be pet, and sometimes his tail.
If you put your bird (male, female? Name?) on your finger, and flip your finger up-side down so your bird is up-side down, pet his stomach, head, back, tail, wherever and see which place he feel the most comfortable with.
Don't worry, this won't hurt your bird. You can also train your bird to do this as a trick! We call this the 'Bat' trick, and our birds love it.
I, lacking firsthand experience, would have to say it depends on the bird. Sometimes I pet my bird on the back, he/she requests to rip my fingers off, and sometimes I pet another bird on the back, he/she loves it, and wants more. You have need of to find the one place your bird loves!
If you want to rub your parakeet on it's head, you enjoy to show it your not putting your finger there to hurt him, but to prove your not going to hurt him. And don't apporatch him to fast with your paw! It might get the feeling your trying to hurt it. Once it knows your not going to hurt him, you can do it continuous. Your bird will Love it. And might even track you down for you to rub it! =)
They also love it when you rub there belly. Spoiled brats =)
My budgie loves to be petted around his neck and on his stomach but take it slow when you try to pet him for the first few times.
Mine used to resembling her head being pet.
