I can't think of a good name for him! We're pretty sure that he is male, hatched in 2001 so he is at leat 7 yrs. and never had a name so I want it to be special.

Our 2 other Tiels are Rocky and Stella, then there are the budgies: Trident, Cornelius, Zira,Tinkerbell, Buttercup, Sonny and Cher.

Any ideas? Here is a pic of him, I thought of Bovine or Pony, lol but the DH didn't like those! :rolleyes: Thanks for your help!

Hi, he's very nice! As for the name...I don't know. I don't have the imagination to come up with really unusual names....Hence my tiel's called Garry! ;)

is the band on his leg open or closed? if its closed then he was born in 2001 but if its a open band it is possiable the breeder or a previous owner put a old band on him !

but every time I look at his pic the Names Bullet and Wiggles pop out at me ( i have no idea why wiggles though LOL)

It is an open band, so how can I tell his age roughly? I am confused now! Lol!:blink:

Since you seem to like animated movie names (don't blame you really:p), what about Jacquimo? He is the swallow in the movie Thumbelina and is quite a character. :cool:

you got him at a breeder right?

did they give you his hatch certificiate?

that will tell you excatly when he was born

if not Than you could ask the breeder, (if he's already told you then say you forgot what he said) and if he says its anything but 7 yrs olds (any younger) then ask him why his leg band says he was born in 2001

other than that, there really isn't a way that i know of

Tiels don't get iris rings like budgies do , so that makes it a bit harder on guessing thier ages

The first name that came to mind was Blanko since his name was blank for so long.

I like Lacuna too, it means something like missing part so it would be a good name too, but it might sound more feminine.

I like the name Blanko, but i would spell it Blanco! :D It's the name of one of the two stallions who played Shadofax in Lord of the Rings (i'm not trying to sound like a nerd here, it's just coming naturally :p) and i've always loved the name.

Well it was really hard to decide, but we went with Butter Ball. I still like Bovine, lol. But my DH and I just couldn't decide on one so our 6 year old said he looked like a ball of butter and it hit me. Lol!
