    Want to get started with Rollers. What do I need to start? Any info greatly appreciated. Never had pigeons before, parakeets, cockatiels, and chickens / guineas, but never pigeons.
    Thanks

    Birminham rollers best performance rolling (only n only down straight) easist to keep etc n most available due to popularity (though only 10'-30' considered compitition flying type rollers), n eat least feed (fourth to half usa cup per flying "kit" bird fed each bird each day), n need least space 24" square to 4' square kit box with two perches each). Breeding same add two nests per breeding female. oriental rollers best all around performance and evading BOPS/raptors.
