    Quote:When we introduced & started selling the Blue Ringneck (abyssinian blue color) to other breeders, there were many people that were trying to call their ringnecks somesort of Blue Ringneck so they could get higher prices. When we first started selling the Blue Ringnecks- they were selling for $250 to $350 per pair at auction.
