I got Jive from a pet shop, I did find out that he/she has been hand raised. I had been looking around for a tiel for a while and when I saw Jive, I knew I found the bird for me. I should say that Jive choose me. The lady at the shop took Jive out of the cage n he/she sat stright on my fingure and started talking and whistling. Ive only had Jive for a few days, but Im suprised at how well he/she has settled in. Jive starts talking and whistling as soon as I uncover him/her in the morning. He/she keeps it up all day, lots of personaliy in this little bird. He/she spits seed at the cats, its so funny.
