98 MTZ 3517 Blue Checker Hen: medium body, orange-gravel eye. It is
really easy to write about pigeons of such quality. I will let the actual
facts do the talking. No superlatives are needed. Winner of: 2nd vs. 167b,
2nd vs. 203b, 11th vs. 442b, 3rd Section vs. 314b, 3rd vs. 182b, 3rd vs.
192b, 3rd vs. 196b, 3rd Section vs. 329 b, 16th Section vs. 774b, 25th
Combine vs. 1474b and 6th Section vs. 255b. Most of these diplomas were
won at 280 and 313 miles. She is a grand daughter of "Number One",
and shows "Blackie-Z", "Samm-Z" and the "Melucci
Cock" in her pedigree. She is a hen that could easily be bred back
to one of the more inbred cocks of the family with great success, as she
shows the "180" hen only four times.
