Rollers vrs. Tumblers
This post is actually for K.D. Spurling...
K.D. You seem to have a lot of knowledge about pigeons and I have a question for you. I have a bunch of Pensom rollers, a pair of short faced tumblers (unsure of exact breed) and a bronze english tumbler (medium faced?) and was wondering what is the main difference between a roller and a tumbler? I was told that the difference is in performance, rollers do backflips and tumblers do front flips. Is this the main difference? I also read that rollers came to be from breeding with different types of Tumblers. Is this correct? I am eager to find this out for my own curiosity, and thank you K.D. for sharing your knowledge with the rest of us so graciously. Its good to have such a great administrator-host (Carl-bigbird) and a kind and generous person involved with this great site (turmani-K.D. Spurling).
