Default Does Cosmo like being pet?

Hi everybudgie!
Does Cosmo like being pet? I pet her on the right of her head, sort of the "shoulder" area. She sort of nibbles on my finger when I pet her, but she doesn't move away. She doesn't seem uncomfortable, but I can't really tell.

Thanks!

If the skritches you are giving Cosmo made her uncomfortable, she would be either be moving away from you or biting you (not nibbling).

At first when I tried petting she moved away a bit, but after a while she stopped moving away. So does she like the skritches?

Also, Cosmo has never bit me before.

I just tried petting again, but this time, Cosmo "grabbed" my finger with her foot, and started nibbling at my finger. And then Lulu, who was sitting next to Cosmo, started nibbling also. What are they doing?

It seems that Cosmo enjoys the petting and is trying to "preen" your finger in return, prompting Lulu to also do so

The gentle nibbling that budgies often do is how they preen their flock mates
