It looks like rollers. Check the band. Homer band, I think, won't fit on roller babies. It might be too big. And roller band wont fit homers because they are too small.

And you probably won't know for sure what you have until you fly them, but checking the band like Rod said is a good idea.

Does the guy that owns them fly his birds? Do you want show rollers or performing rollers? If you want the performing type ONLY buy from breeders that FLY their birds. Then you can see the siblings or the ones they want sell perform in the air. If some one is trying to sell you performing rollers and wont fly them or show you some thing that performs something is wrong so be wary. There are too many good breeders who have the real thing and would gladly fly them for you.

They honestly really don't look like the Birmingham rollers we have in England. These look too plump and round.

SO did they turn out to b rollers?

The eyes on those birds looked to be black "Bull-eye". That is standard in white show rollers, but I can't ever recall seeing "Bull-eyes" in flying or Birmingham rollers. Does anyone else have an answer to this - pure white flying rollers are not to common where I come from.

The bull eyes come with the color. The gene that is causing them to be white, is called recessive white. It covers up the genetic color with white (so the bird could technically be blue or red and you wouldn't know until you breed them), and gives them black eyes.
The majority of my rollers had bull eyes. Only a few had pearl, orange, or split eyes. Sometimes eye color seems to be effected by the feather color, like how split eyes and bull eyes are common in pied birds. If these are flying Birminghams, eye and feather color were probably the least of their concerns.
