The price one chooses to charge or pay is very personal.
Birds that reside in different parts of the country are
priced according to what the area commands.
The price you have mentioned is more of a pet store price
rather than a breeder price from my part of the country,
which is PA.
It certainly doesn't imply that the bird is not worth the
money. From what you say, it's sounds as if it has a lot
going for him. $550 is not an outrageous price, though.
You make the final decision if this bird is worth the price
to you. Good luck.
