RPDC Site News
As part of our focus on improving our services we have added a new optional online customer support feature located on the bottom right side of your screen. This can be used to inquire about our Ruby Rollers strain or ask questions about your order. Customers can use it to receive support for their purchase by asking questions about flying, feeding, training and kit management. Telephone calls are still welcome and encouraged.
You may have also noticed that we changed the appearance of our website and have added a few more pull-down menu options to bundle certain topics together for visitor convenience. Place your mouse cursor over the category tabs for pull-down menu options.
Also want to remind those who are thinking of purchasing Ruby Rollers that they can finance from between $99 and $500 using the pay through Paypal option and selecting the Bill-Me-Later option. Currently you can get a 6-month no payments and 0% interest and we still ship your birds in our regular shipping schedule. Click this LINK for complete details.
We are also working on our newsletter and promise to soon get you links to some great articles from our previous version of the old Roller Pigeon Digest that you can only get access to through links in our newsletter. Take a quick moment and join the site newsletter and get access to exclusive articles.
We have much more coming that is currently in the works for improving the site and enhancing your enjoyment of the Birmingham Roller pigeon.
Want to take a moment to thank all those who have purchased our Ruby Rollers and have made the last several months among the best we have had in the last 10 years!
We appreciate the support and the nice feed back we here from so many of our customers. We are honored by the trust you have placed in us and we will continue to do all we can to provide the very best Birmingham Roller stock and maintain the quality that so many have come to expect.
All Roller Talk Archive
A new link to the All Roller Talk Archive is available in the main menu section for easy access to the forum archives. Just press the “All Roller Talk Archive” menu link and you will have direct access to over 100,000 posts started in 2004 ending in 2010 covering virtually every topic imaginable on the Birmingham Roller.
This archive is loaded with valuable information from top roller fanciers the world over. From breeding, kit training and management, strain making, pigeon politics and lively debates on a wide variety of topics, it’s all here.
While mostly positive and with an air of trying to be helpful, this archive starts in some of the early days of the Internet when it still had a Wild West feel to it. This led to many heated and passionate discussions and for those arguing their position, one either made allies or enemies depending, which way your opinion fell.
From this came obvious splintering and factions of differing viewpoints and cliques leading to new forums and websites as lines were drawn. One might be in or out depending on the point of view one held.
Things may or may not have come a long way since those days but the archive stands testament to what many roller fanciers were thinking back in the early days of the roller pigeon hobby on the Internet.
Best To Best Discussion
In discussing our efforts to improve our roller stock one often-used phrase in the roller community is “breed best to best”. This phrase serves to summarize the most practical and reasonable method for stocking a loft with quality birds. The crux is our understanding of what IS best and the PATH that leads us there.

Roller Tip: Mixing young birds from various strains and of various ages will result in poor training results. When it comes to young birds strive for an age range of about 30 days apart and fly differing strains in separate kit boxes.
