Pros - Easy, Smaller, Hardy and Good Parents
Cons - Hard to STOP-Parenting!
Been a great experience with pigeons yet far though I did find that taking away the eggs if you dont want babies isn't a good option for these guys, Lol! We tried to take their eggs away so they wouldn't be raising babies and be in good condition for the county fair but they instead his a nest and hatched two more babies!
Pros - Great parents, good flyers, beautiful, and very tame!
Cons - Aggressive to each other.
We started out with one pair and now have six. They have been great parents and haven't lost a single squab or egg. Our pair has raise there six chicks plus a foster baby that they hatched and raised.
Some of our rollers pigeons.
Marco and Taylor.
Pros - Tollerent, Hardy, Intellegent
Cons - Rolldowns,
I have had Birmingham Rollers up till recently and have greatly enjoyed my experience with this breed. The birds that I had were very tolerant to myself and would eat off of my hand, and were hardy with Minnesota's weather. The best rollers that I had were the most intelligent and found other ways to sneak into their loft besides the traditional trap door. Some of them were rather flighty but, with some attention and some "tlc" they tolerate my attention; those that I hand feed became rather affectionate towards me.
Pros - Love to see them roll and they are really good parents.
Cons - Can roll to their deaths if you don't breed carefully.
I have 11 at the moment and they are so cool and have such pretty colors!
They don't love holding still for pics. They are very sweet pigeons and if you spend time with them they become really tame.
