Default Budgie of the Month/May 2012

Hello and welcome to the Budgie of the Month Contest

Are you ready for a brand new challenge?
First let's start by reviewing the rules and regulations.

Rules and Regulations:

If you are new to Talk Budgies, please read all the rules carefully. The complete list of rules and regulations can be found here: BOTM Rules & Regulations
Here's the short version of the rules;
Take a recent (within the past 6 months) photo of your budgie accomplishing this month's challenge. No fancy schmancy photo editing, just take the picture and send it to me by clicking here:My BOTM Entry

Include your budgie's name and what you would choose as the next month's challenge


Deadline:
The contest opens today and will close for entries on May 21st . On that day I will ask people to start sending me their votes for the month. Do not vote before May 21st please.

Prizes:
The winner will receive 50 karma points, an exclusive wallpaper featuring the winning photo will be made available for downloading and the winner will be automatically entered in the Budgie of the Year contest, which takes place in December.

Please post any questions or comments on this thread.

Ready for this month's challenge that Brooke has chosen for you?

Because Mother's Day (in North America) is just around the corner, Brooke has chosen this appropriate challenge..........










Mother Hens!

"Either Hens and their eggs, or with their hatchlings, or even Hens with their fledgelings I mean, May IS the month we celebrate Moms!"-Brooke




So snap a photo of your budgie displaying mothering behavior and send it to me asap!

Good luck to all

ps-keep your eye on the Contest Forum-a major Contest announcement is coming up soon

What a good theme/ Challenge idea.

Unfortunately my Fids can't enter My partner says "no more budgies (we have 5) and don't even think about breeding them so you get more that way". Guess 5 is enough for now lol.

Good luck to all who enter

I might be able to... Just put Mango into a nest box for a couple of min, snap a pic, and remove the nest box! This is going to be a cute contest with all the hens and baby budgies!

Sure, I will accept pics of single fathers

I realize this month will be challenging. There is no rush to get your photos in, take your time and use your imagination if need be. Budgie's can be a "mother" to many things can't they ?
