    I don't know, but it just seems like your title is waiting for a punch line...

    Hope someone serious answers:)

    Homers have long stout beaks and their heads tend to not be to high or round. Rollers would have small thin beaks and very round foreheads. Plus rollers have shorter legs. Homers "atheletic" rollers "pretty".

    When my brother had pigeons we called them Tumblers. Cuz they tumbled when flying. Very cool to watch.
