That's fantastic - thank you so much! I really hope he wins. Not just for the prize money for the NUBS organization, but because a budgie should take the title .

Thanks again everyone!

Nubs was rescued from a hoarder house. He was among 368 birds that were rescued. He was missing his foot due to inbreeding. Kristin, one of the volunteers at the animal shelter, fell in love with him and took him home. He travels and is an ambassador for his charity and even has a book written about him. You can read more about him here: New Book Tells True Story of Bird Hoarding Rescue - Chicago Tribune Or on his website.

I asked Kristen about his gender. Seems many people think he is a she. But he is a he (despite the appearance of his cere). He goes to the vet regularly (he has ongoing health issues due to the inbreeding) and the vet confirmed that Nubs is a male.

I really hope he wins. He's such a sweet little guy!
