Rollers are easy to rehome. Yes, as you have found out, they replace all their feathers over a period of a couple of weeks this time of year. Rollers vary in their rolling ability according to their background. Amount of food, how they are flown etc. will influence how long they fly and rolling to some degree but only within the limits of their genes. Some rollers have been selected for color etc. and are no longer good rollers. Others are bred for performance only. Although flying is a big part of the fun of pigeons, know that a hawk can easily catch your bird. You have to decide if that is worth the risk. If they have eggs/young later I would certainly lock them down during that time to be sure that the parents are there to raise the young.
