    racing homers... we use them as feeders for our short beaked birds.

    i also like homers , flights and roller are both good too


    clean leg birds ,so they don't drag babies out of the nest.

    It all depends upon the bird. Some of my birds are better then others and if they don't botherwith the squabs/squeakers they go into the kit box. Homers and Rollers are commenly used.

    i throw my hat in the bag for rollers. By far the best. the more show/ exotic the bird, ie, jacobin, frills, ect, the less a good parent i've learned. but that's just my two-sense.
