    Depends on how they are. usually not till they are at least six months old. The are very good birds for the beginner. Very hardt and good producers. I have about 50-60. Have raised them for over 30 years. They still fascinate me! What colors did you get?

    rollers comes in all colours as they're not as important as their flying ability... yours just black.

    Males will be larger in the neck, but still hard to sex that way. Male will coo more and feed the female before mating. If they are 6 months old they will be breeding anyday now.
