The Ruby Rollers strain is an established family of Birmingham Rollers. We established this family back in 1993 up continue to work to improve them through this current year. We have bred, flown and worked with thousands of birds providing us with extensive experience working with our stock. It's a smart decision to put all our years of time, effort and expertise to work for you.
Save yourself time, hassle and most of save yourself years of experimentation and frustration and take advantage of our work. It doesn't matter if you want to fly in competitions or just want to fly quality stock in your back yard there is no reason to wait. We have literally shipped thousands of Ruby Rollers throughout the USA.
So if for your own backyard enjoyment, breeding to build your own strain and want an out-cross, or take on the challenge of maintaining the Birmingham Roller breed standard, the Ruby Roller strain has all the right ingredients.
Our original stock is Pensom based and can be traced back to some of the top roller pigeon breeders from Southern California. Point of interest: Our foundation bird LPRC-93-903 is only 7 generations from the famous Pensom 514 hen.
Young Birds: Our Young Birds designation are for young immature stock generally between the ages of 2 to 3 months and that have been weaned and removed from our breeding loft and are ready for immediate shipment. The lower price is what it is since we have not invested any significant time into them such as prepping them to become kit birds which requires a significant amount of time to do it right.
Gender: As young birds it can be difficult to identify their gender. For this reason we make every attempt to do so anyway by looking at physical traits that hint at their gender. For example cocks tend to have a wider chest compared to hens, also the tail is a bit longer on cock than hens, the nose tissue is a bit more pronounced on cocks than on hens, the hens also tend to have more space between the end of the keel bone and the vent bones which allows the passing of eggs. The cocks tend to have wider secondary feathers than do hens.
So when we identify a Young Bird cock or hen, we have made our best judgement and so for that reason we can't guarantee the final outcome of the bird's gender. We can only guarantee the gender of fully mature birds such as Seed Stock or our Breeder Stock.
There Is A Secret To Flying Good Birds, here it is: look in the mirror and ask the guy looking back, how much patience and willingness does he have to learn about this breed and apply it? Be willing to put in the time to manage and train these pigeons properly and you will breed and fly quality Birmingham Rollers.
