    So do rollers, tumblers, roll and tumble while fly? And Modenas can you let them free fly or are they a loft bird? How long do you have a bird before you can let it free fly? I don't know really anything about pigeons, but I'm thinking about getting some.

    If you get grown birds you need to let them nest a time or two before turning them out. Young birds need to get used to their surroundings for at least a month or two. Performing,aka.Birmingham ,aka flying rollres turn saumersaultes in the air,Parlor rollers can't fly after they are 4-5 months old and turn sumersaults on the ground. Modenas can be free ranged,but if you have hawks they won't last long because they can't outfly a hawk at all. They are ground to roof flyers and that is about it.
