Well, I'm nosy, so I started looking........I can't find this birds number anywhere. I found an 8418, BC and I found Michael and Susan Smith, which are the ones who had these type bands, but that number isn't listed anywhere that I can find............:confused:

I emailed CBS and this is what I got from them. LOL

I don't see any results for it either. Maybe it wasn't activated. It was originally entered in the Texas Gusher.

Well, either way, the ad was false........glad you didn't pay a lot of money for it........but it MIGHT be the best thing since sliced bread!!! Ya never know!!

eyespyer,

Give it a shot, some of the best overall fliers and breeders I ever had, never won a race. Consistancy is what I look for, do the progeny consistantly do better that what I already have. It's the only way I know if a nic on the family worked! I don't always look at the winner but at the top 10-20%, and I manage to win my share of races.
