Default No Bird Badge for Hummingbird Owners?

A WI Front Page entry has been added:

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!

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

Dolphins are mammals, not fish.

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.
