If you want offspring that are not the best at rolling and not the best at homing I would say "Yes" go for it. Some fanciers keep pigeons just for eye candy. I am not of that like personally.

Hope this helps,

I'd keep breeds separate as for separate enjoyments. One you take out n let them race home, breeding from best (ten miles ok, hundred miles competition, six hundred miles champion). Other fly from home, doing long downward backflips (ten in row or more considered roller, thirty feet are a competition roller, n fifty to hundred feet deep/long roller).
