How Many people Name Their Pigeons ? Usually when i see racing birds They usually have a 2 part name , why is this ? Lets share some Names ? I Have Eggs ready To Hatch and the Kids have named the Homers we have now , but since i'll be flying these birds I'll be naming Them .... or I may put pictures up so we can vote on what each should be named .... That could be fun ! Hope To hear from everyone on this subject - and Thank You ahead of Time , Peace ! :cool:

A lot of people don't name their birds - it make the losses easier to deal with. Some names are just used on the pedigrees.

I do name my birds. They are all named after countries or cities or states. For example, my favorite birds are Topeka, Cheyenne, Rio, Dover, Brooklyn, Chile and Memphis.

We name ours after physical or character traits. Those bands are hard to read from 2 feet away let alone when that sucker is zooming by.

We have Splash, Gertrude, Checkers, Big Nose, Dumb (we used to have Dumber but...), Air, Yellow Band, That One, and Big mean in the flying loft. Over in the Prisoner area we have Brute, Bernardo, Gruny, Red Head, Boston Blue, and Black Can.

I personally never have named a bird that was under a year old in my loft because for some reason they are always the ones that are taken first and its true it does take a toll on your mental being of raising birds in general .. its freaking sad to say the least:(

LokotaLoft , what do you mean by " Taken " ..... By Hawks ? If so sorry for your Loss / Losses but wouldn't it be better to be able to Say " I remember that day when Old Burt was Snatched outta mid air by that darn Hawk " rather then just remember him as that one bird .... don't you agree ? Its Not always easy but you have to Enjoy The Good times You have with them - and they'll always be other great moments to enjoy -- I Think You should Start naming Your Birds like the rest of Us --- maybe start out with naming them after the " Smurfs " or Something !!!!!!! Peace ! Keep the Names Coming people , I am Loving This Post ! WoooooooooHooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

LokotaLoft , the Birds That you have that are over a year old -- You have some names for us to enjoy ?
I have many names for my birds but even the no namers are not forgotten trust me ... and yes its always the hawks that make thier lives shorter when they go missing around here .. its such a bummer as I am very attached to my babys :(

Good To Hear You are attached and care about your Birds ! I just figured say if you're telling a buddy a story wouldn't it be easier if each bird that a hawk took and if you were trying to talk about them it'd be easier if named -- and You're gonna hold out on us the names of your Older Birds ? Why ? Come On join in On The Fun -- I've seen some funny names , wierd names , and very very interesting ones also - Lets see how yours compare - Live a little for cryen out loud , put a smile on and be Happy ! Peace ! ; )
