Yea, I've "heard" of it, but don't really know anything about it. I checked the breeders list and I know a few of the people who've entered birds. I looked for the list from 2008, but can't find it. If you have the same people returning for another year, then that might be a good sign.
Sorry, guess that wasn't much help huh?
Being a former cook/waitress/bartender I'll go with the old restaurant saying that "if someone has a good experience they will only tell 4 people who will tell 2 etc but if they have a bad experience they will tell 10 who will tell 8 etc"
