My camera has gone AWOL :eek: worst bit is, it will probably show up when we move our stuff, and then I'll have no internet :p

Also, there is no catagory for my budgies, they are, for the most part, neither exhibition or wild type, they are all mixes :eek:

They would be classed as pet/american then i think, Azurei. Thats where i placed Freki and Rhea since i have no idea what they are exactly.

So pets :)

Ohhhhh let's see then :D can only try after all :p Most of my photos have budgie bombs or whatever you call them :p had a lush one of Marli but can't use it as all the others are peering into the camera from behind her :giggle:

I don't know how you get them full size in a post but here they are. Skylar pet type, Marli pet type, and Nemo pet type :) With a little bit of exhibition in there too :p Especially Marli!

i have photos on another site (Facebook) so instead of uploading them again, i just copy the image url and then when posting them to the forum i just hit the little button in between the speech bubble and the globe (It looks like mountain with a sun) is above the text input box.

Which opens a box where you paste the link to the image is. The is will post a big image.

Or you can do it the lazy way and just put [ url]thenyourlinkherewithoutthespace[/url] :D

if any of that made sense

You are allowed to enter all your budgies.
Enter them in the Pet/American/Wild Category and indicate they are a "Mix" - especially if they look more like a Show Budgie.
I have a 50/50 DEC (Sparky) and he was entered in the Pet/American Category last year even though he does have traits of a Show Budgie. :D
