    I know a lot of yall like lookin at pics of everyones pigeons. Thought I'd post up some of mine.

    I keep rollers, tipplers, and Damascenes. The only ones I actively fly right now are the Rollers. I'm trying to get my tippler population up before I start turning them out. Same with my Damascenes. I've never flown Damascenes before, but I picked up 2 pair at Louisville from an Amish fella. I just looked like the looks of them...I think theyd be something nice to look at flying around. Especially the way their color would show out against a dark gray sky.



    Bathtime for the Rollers....

    Oh man..I think they are around 5x5? I really can't remember. I made em out of scrap 1x4's that I had laying around, then threw a 1/4" plywood bottom on them then just screwed them to the wall. They're almost a little small for the damascenes but I"m gonna move them into a different loft.

    You have a nice looking bunch of birds there! Are your rollers pretty good performers?

    Yeah, they're not bad. I have a couple of 15-20ft spinners and 1 or 2 30 foot spinners. I have a female that is absolutely awesome after about 30 minutes in the air....looks like a little buzzsaw dropping out of the sky. I'm gonna breed out of her as much as I can before she either hits the house or a hawk gets her.

    I'm noticing that a lot of my rollers are real slow coming into the roll. This batch here is almost a year old and some of them are still tail riding.
