i bought a hand fed bird at a pet store. Keep in mind that hand fed is NOT hand reared. I actually paid MORE for Charlie than if I had gotten her from a breeder. Charlie has NOT been easy to tame (and still isnt) and I've suffered a really nasty bite. I do however, love her to pieces...
I bought Buddy at a pet store where they handle their birds. Buddy went from my hand to my shoulder and we've been friends ever since.
If I were you, I would go to another breeder, or at least check out some local pet shops that may handle their birds..your experience will be so much better, I promise you.

Oh...and google cockatiel rescue in your area...there are some really sweet birds that need to be adopted...
You can get a tamed cockatiel, maybe a little older, but sweet....
