    They are long birds which originally were a flying breed which would make swift turns while flying. Most people show them now and only some familys of the bird fly well. They are high flyers and will stay up for one or two hours.

    can they cross with other pigeon types, like homers or rollers?

    All domestic breeds of pigeons can cross but it isn't advised. The children wouldn't be very good at homing or rolling.
