So, Buddy and I have been together for a little over 4 months now.


We have came SO far in these 4 months. He wasn't hand tame - he is completely now.

His personality is definitely showing up differently with my 2 teenage kids and I

My son (13) he tends to tease a ton with and be more aggressive towards, but never in a mean biting way

My daughter (16) he is more relaxed and playful with

Me on the other hand am totally his BFF! I get it all! He always does anything I ask of him (bathing, staying put, going home (inside his cage) etc.

He even snuggles with me and is very affectionate with me (kisses, snuggly)

I have also noticed that when we are having down time and he's sitting relaxed with me he starts primping and preening his feathers a ton!

WHY IS THIS? Any thoughts? He doesn't do this with anyone else?

Is it just his personality or is there another reason?

Yep, he trusts you and feels he can let his guard down enough to clean himself and such on you. He just doesn't feel that way with others if he's not doing it on them too.
