king fisher vs lilac breasted roller

I have both roller and kingfisher. I don't find the roller to be as colorful as kingfisher. It is also difficult for find feathers with the proper shape. I agree with the price issue with kingfishers costing around 20$. If you get to he point were your selling flies for a few hundred each then I can see poping for chatterer. Nothing looks as bright as chatterer. One alternative that I haven't stouped down too would be budgies from the local pet store.
