    • Thanks Val,
      We would be glad to have you as a member if we were a big enough club. We are just a local Los Angeles club. Maybe we will get ambitious some day and expand, but for now we are just concentration on getting some good birds flying and competing with our “new” rules.

    • Hi Todd,
      That is my fastest spinner from last year. It is my family. I haven’t crossed in about 25 years, but I did use some blood from Cornell in making my family. I put my family “tree” on my page.

    Possibly a link or message center on the website would be helpful for people who find tagged birds and wish to notify someone.

    • larclub Says:

      Thanks for taking the time to contact the LARC regarding your find. I will look into the possibility of crafting a tool that allow finders of lost birds to input band data and transmit in real time. Also, I will out which LARC member has that band series and post that information for you.

  13. stephen craig aristei Says:

    I am trying to find a good home for three kit lofts….they were once featured in the old Roller Journal…..each holds 24 birds (box perches) and all have wire bottems for easy cleaning, fit side by side on a piece of 4 x 8 plywood and are lite, easy to move and have “funnel” drop holes (traps)….I am wondering if some young fancier might need them or someone else…I simply want to get them out of storage (costing me too much and taking up to much room)……Please email me with any ideas…thanks,
    sca

    Strayed in a young 2010 blue bar hen. The band says LA Breeders. Anyone know anything about LA Breeders?? I tried searching for a website to find the owner and no website. Thanks.

    • Yes Johnny, LA Breeders does not have a website. It is run by Ron Dent. His shop is located in Los Angeles on Western at 98th street. His phone # is 323-242-1070.
      Thanks, Paul

      Paul

  24. Luis Moreno Says:

    Hello, I am getting back into birds and am looking for breeders in the LA area. Can you guys recomend anyone? Thanks in advance

  25. Actually I was doing something totally different today. However, it took me reminiscing to the time I was raising roller pigeons in Los Angeles, CA. So many memories, experiences, and fun-times spent I thought I got to get back into the game. But I don’t know how, I have nothing; no cage, birds – nothing! All I have is experience, a few old pictures, and some amid new ideas to share with the entire roller community/sport. So I thought: how, what, and where do I start? I’d appreciate any suggestions.
    Thank you.

  27. Dear Sirs,
    i am one of the breeders in my country and would like to find someone that i can buy fancy pigeons from and he ship them to me.

    hoping that you can help me in this matter.

    Abd Ali

    • Sorry about taking so long to get in touch with you.
      I have birds available, but i don’t know about shipping out of the country.
      Paul Gomez

  28. Where are the muffed birds coming from? I see them in some Sam Smith birds are they Plonas?

    • I believe that most breeders could probably produce muffs from their current birds if they took enough time working st it.

  29. I found a just a blue bird band from your club today 10-19-14 in Denver Colorado. It is #34. Hope this information helps someone know where the bird was at one time. The band was in good shape and easily readable.

    • Thanks a lot for the information. It’s pretty surprising that the bird was found so far away from Los Angeles. I appreciate your efforts letting us know.

  30. I would like to join,my favorite pigeons are rollers.this been my hobby for many years fying pigeons.

  31. Dora Alvarez Says:

    thank you

    • FaTRaT Rollers Says:

      Hi there! Are you near the long beach area? I had a few birds that got scared away by the hawk and didn’t return. Some which had BCRC(red band) and Roller World.
