    Up for bids is one pair of Birmingham Roller Pigeons. This is a mated pair. The hen is a red mottle (James Turner line) and the male is a reduced t-pattern blue check. This pair also has 2 babies (4-5 weeks old) still in the nest.

    Baby pics:
    This one looks like a reduced, which means it's a female.

    Not sure what this one is, but it sure is pretty! It's mainly 'gray' but looks like it has white wing bars??

    Shipping is based on your zip code plus $10 for the box. Since this is the parents and both babies, they should be fine in one box. I can combine shipping on all my pigeon listings, up to 4 boxes, with 1 pair per box (aside from this family).

    I have another red-bar youngster (sex unknown at this point), also out of this pair, available for $5 if interested.

    Would we be able to fly them here or would they not come back? I was just wondering because we have capucine pigeons and we don't let ours fly.

    They should come back but you'd need to keep them put up for a while so they'd learn where 'home' is. I've not let them fly here because of the hawks, I'd hate to lose any. I had capuchines and they did okay free-flying.
