    I name my animals by their personality, if I get nothing from that I think of names or sayings I've heard of that really interest me and I see how they fit with my animals.


    To give you a few examples
    I have a coturnix quail male named Cricket....named so because from the day he was born until jus tweeks ago when he was happy or scared he'd call out and it sounded like a cricket singing on a summer night. [​IMG]

    I have a button quail hen named Pippin....she was my first hatching attempt ever...so I wanted to name her something to document taht and since she was the first to PIP she got the name Pippin [​IMG]

    I have another button quail hen that i named Keeper (keeper of the stars) I named her Keeper because she was a chick from my breeding pair, and I was keeping her....ergo Keeper...[​IMG]
