Good social side to it very friendly and because there isnt big money prizes etc you dont get the agro like racing .burnt out lofts thefts etc. Come from long line of "show people" dogs canaries budgies ,rabbits guinea pigs .get satisfaction when you breed something worth showing to other people,be it new colour ,type etc.Also the shows are a good place to see something new ,and get outcrosses for your genepools .

Each to their own but I can't stand them feather legged ones or deformed beakless ones. Some of them types can't feed their own young can they?

Its all.about the flying for me, watching the sky to see a bird appear, hopefully with somebody elses doo in tow lol even without a tackle, I couldn't keep pigeon that couldn't plough the sky, as long as they bring you enjoyment tho

And hopefully they will be bringing back these little buggers when I start flying them. I lost 5 of my first 6 chicks this year.

I've only just got these tbh. I got rid of my others a good while ago but when I was watching young rollers drifting off lost I had to get them back for retrieving them. That black doo flies for miles and has plenty of steam he just needs to stop looking for cream hens now.

I've been letting him work other colour roller hens so he stops being choosy, as long as he flies well and attracts my rollers back I'm happy. I got them 2 doos and a hen and they all fly really well, my old ones must have been stiffies :)

You'd like that one ;)

Maybe a splash of it. I think most working pouters are crosses, like lurchers.

I couldnt disagree with you more,personally i would get no satisfaction whatsoever from showing a bird/dog/rabbit to somebody and having them tell me it looks nice......but like i say each to their own i dont get it but we,re all different.
