Default The Dreaded Teenager Phase

Hello!
I see there is are one or two "stickies" on this topic, but I wanted to hear more stories about this lovely phase.
Sev has, I believe, entered this phase, where he no longer has much interest in me putting my hand in his cage (cue angry dolphin noises). He will hop out on his own and then will let me hold him. But he is definitely becoming less affectionate and doesn't like to be near my face as much (sad).
I know that once they are no longer babies they don't like to cuddle as much, but Sev was never really much of a cuddler, just the occasional head scritch.
Will he grow out of this phase and like to preen me again?

Each bird is unique and there is no way to predict whether Sev will become as affectionate as he was previously.
Chances are that he will still preen you occasionally.
Each day is a journey when you have a budgie so just enjoy the ride!
