why do some birds eye's swell up and basically pop out when they roll? Are these birds culls?

It sounds like some of your birds are bumping or rolling down and you notice them after the fact. Have you see any of the birds in question hit the ground or roof top after a roll?

I would say G-forces, high velocity/rapidity has something to do with it. Blood rushing to the head?

May not be culls, but I would never stock them.

I had the same question. One of my rubys developed a swollen eye the other day. I was planning on letting her recover for a week or two and try flying her a again. Is this a sound idea?

I wouldn't cull the bird yet or eliminate it from the breeding program either. It could have hit another bird while rolling and if that's the case it will be fine. You will know more after the swelling goes down and you start flying again.

I agree with Michael,I have seen in the past some of my old birds bumping during the spin.Rest the bird for a week and try to focus on it during flight.

May be bumping or hittihg, but chances are it is from extreme velocity, especially if there is blood only. In these cases depth or duration has nothing to do with it. It has been said these birds have weak blood vessels and should be culled. Common sense tells us some birds have stronger blood vessels than others, however, if tightness and velocity are your goals these are your breeders--with an eye always on vessels.
