Where do ringneck parakeets like to be massaged/touched?

Hi, I was wondering where ringneck parakeets like to be massaged. My friend's IRN likes to be rubbed along the ring, but I was wondering what birds generally find comforting and what ISNT comfortable for them. Sounds like a dumb question, but I wanted to hear input from you guys.


Thanks!

It depends on the bird and the species to be honest. Some birds just don't like being touched, some species like being stroked while other like being scratched. It also depends on their feather structure because something that is comfortable for one species may be extremely uncomfortable for another.

My IRN won't let you touch him.
He isn't a cuddly birdy.

Most IRN are typically un-cuddly. Many are hands off all together so it's not uncommon. Different birds like different things so it's best just to test it out. But one day a place they didn't like the first time might be the nicest place ever the next time

We can give Keiba scratches on his head/neck as well as touch/pat his back. Cant say the same for our other one though.
