Bred bird myself
Posted Jan 20, 2015
I grew up around these amazing birds almost my whole life. Birmingham roller pigeons are very intelligent and it is not difficult to train them. My pigeons have entered worldwide competitions and won many times. Very well behaved birds, they rarely ever go beyond the boundaries of my land. In the odd chances they do, they have numbered bracelets with contact information around their ankle. Easy to catch on to commands, such as when I whistle they fly back to their cage. With the wave of a flag they beginning rolling. Beautiful bird and though pigeons are usually seen as dirty birds, these are very clean. The only difficult experience I've had with these birds is the hawks. You need to be very careful and watch closely to make sure hawks don't snatch your bird. It's a pretty common occurrence.
