Have a question, just bought 2 homers for $10.00, one bird was a young one banded 2009 & I picked up the other one banded: AU 2005 Chicago 9267. I'm curious about the 2005 banded bird, is there anyway I could find out more about his bird. I bought these birds from a guy who said he bought them from a Pigeon racer who is/was getting a divorce, wife got the house & property, so he had to sell his birds off. Both birds that I bought are very nice looking birds, I picked the best 2 outta about 30 Birds, I was the 1st guy to answer his add on Craigslist were he had them listed, so i got 1st pick!! Curious about the Chicago Bird........................................ Have Photo, it's a grey bar Red faze.

Post a picture.
Although a picture of it cannot fully tell you the quality of your new pigeon, I would like to see it :)
