I was wondering whats the difference between a roller and a homer? A feral has been dropping by my house latley and people have told me it's a roller. But it looks just like all my other birds, I think it may be a little smaller but I can't see much of a difference, please help.

Homers home and rollers roll and ferels ferel, does that help?:D Awww, just messing with you. Someone with real knowledge will help you out soon. They are just different bred birds that do things differently. I don't know much about how someone could tell a ferel was a roller, but someone on here can.

Tennman1 you are absolutely right!
It’s as in swimming, just different style of flying.
Roller more breast stroke and homer crawl.;)

It looks like they've been shot or something and are plummeting to their deaths! So amazing how they recover so quickly after the free fall too! makes me want to catch that little feral and train him as my own. but still I fear diseases, and I'll never forget what probably brought over what killed my beloved cluckle.

Homers and Rollers are two seperate and distinct breeds of Pigeons. There are 2 sites to check. The American Pigeon Racing Union site and the National Birmingham Roller Club site. These are 2 of the largest clubs exclusively for their breeds.
