No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?


Several of our members who have Hummingbirds on their accounts have noticed an interesting glitch with the Badge feature on My Page.  The programming that determines whether or not an account should have the "Friend of Fowl" badge doesn't appear to be recognizing the Hummingbird as a bird.  Accounts that have a Hummingbird, and do not have any other birds, do not have the Bird Badge as an option on their My Pages.

 

UPDATE:  We have received reports that the same thing is happening with the Toucan and Phoenix.

Weird! As far as I know, a hummingbird is a bird.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

Hmm, this is also simalar to the Toco Toucan (I'm pretty sure they are birds, too).
I only have a Toco Toucanfor a bird and I don't have the badge either.

Maybe they might fix this glitch, soon.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

We have the same problem - no bird badge for the Hummingbird or the Toco Toucan. Our account with no birds but a bat as the only flying webkinz was, however, awarded the "Friend of Fowl" badge. It's strange.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

Well i am glad to see that this became a headline. I suffer from the same problem. I only have a hummingbird on my account and I didn't receive the friend of fowl bagde either.
Thank you for posting this!

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

I have had the same problem since the start of badges but with the dolphin - no fish badge Do you think maybe you need two? Anyway, I'm sure they'll fix it sometime and compared to the great stuff they are creating on Webkinz - the PHOENIX!!!!!!!!! - I must admit I don't really care too much!!

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

I have the hummingbird as my only bird and I have the bird badge. I also only have the pink pony and got the horse badge. I had thought you needed more than 1 to get the badge, but that just blew my theory out of the water! lol

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

That stinks! I hope you guys get you badges! I have a parakeet, a cardinal, and another bird. So I guess I don't have to wory about it!

Dolphins are mammals, not fish.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

You know what I found out! You could get the friend of Fowl badge from adopting a penguin.
I also feel sorry for the people who have humming birds.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

I had only the humming bird and I had no Fowl Badge. I recently adopted the Pelican and I got the badge

Ooops guess I lied. Just checked my badges. When I adopted the Pelican I got the pop up box saying I had the friend of fowl badge but I don't have it in My Page

That's why I don't have a fish badge for the manatee!

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

well the phonex realy isn't a bird 'cause it's a mythical animal thats a mix between a lion and a eagle so realy it's no a bird

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

my only bird is the humming bird and i have that badge

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

I have the emporer Dragon and no bird badge? i think u have another bird also

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

that's odd my computer shows i have the badge and all i have registered is the humming bird.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

I have a hummingbird, googles, and phoenix and no friend of the fowl badge. Since Googles is a duck, I think it should count too.

The concept of the mystical phoenix existed in many ancient cultures, most of which did consider it a bird, not half-lion.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

The phoenix FLIES for goodness sakes. I want my bird badge!

Nope Stacy.P. just like I said in my first post I have the Emperor Dragon and the Whimsy Dragon
And I have the badge I have no more birds or anything that has wings or flys but to think about it the dragons don't fly they walk but anyway I just got the Phoenix yesterday and he flys so when I got my badge all I had were two dragons nothing else.

Re: MY PAGE NEWS: No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

I have had that badge awhile...Got it from my parakeet quite awhile ago.
