    Ok I just got some eggs that the guy says are blue backed? I haven't heard of these and was just curious if anyone out there had any ideas? are they just a color variation of a ring neck or what? Thanks!

    Usually it means a type of ringneck. Blue back ringnecks are also know as manchurian ringnecks. In my opinion the manchurian are among the most beautiful of all the ringnecks.

    Bluebacks are are more wild type of strain of ringneck. They have more defined coloration than a chinese ringneck. They are beautiful and do well if released into the wild. Well if raised correctly to be released. You will like them...I've raised a couple hundred of them.
