    I have a pair of Show Birmingham Rollers, the female is called Pebbles, and the male is called Captain. They have had two young already (from different batches), the young look a lot like Pebbles but redder. I like them as they look cute, they can be shown if you have the right rings, and they are pretty good flyers (may I add they fly different to my other pigeons). They haven’t had too many young but this year they may have more. I need to get some more birds so they aren’t all in bred.

    "Very Friendly, a little bit on the bigger size!"
    Pros - Very good parents, much friendlier than my other breeds, very proud stance and calm.
    Cons - Bigger than regular birmingham rollers, a bit big in the hand when trying to hold or carry them, they also eat a bit more food.
    I have these alongside my performance birmingham rollers and while they're very fun they are a big bigger than my other birms and I might just have small hands but this makes it harder to transport them even just from the aviary to the carriers. Very friendly disposition!

    I miss my rollers. Unfortunately, letting them out was like ringing the dinner bell for the local Cooper Hawks.
