    I raise lots of homing pigeons and Birninham rollers in most colors and have smaller numbers of white American fantails, damascenes, oriental rollers and Chinese owls.

    I have racing homers, indian fantails, satinettes, and lahores [​IMG]


    And the reason pigeons are legal in most places, is because they are not (or shouldn't be) considered poultry.

    I keep Birmingham rollers and I also have a pair of parlor rollers. I love my Birminghams and couldn't imagine not having them anymore. I love watching them fly and perform.

    Hey there,

    I have a flock of Lahores, and 2 Indian Fantails right now. But I hope to add a couple more breeds.

    I think they are easily as addicting as chickens to keep!

    Take Care,
    Bill.
