“The Challenge” Breeding Championship Budgerigars, by Gerald S Binks and first published in November 1997, is the accepted finest book ever published on all aspects of the hobby.

When it first appeared, 437 copies were snapped up at that year’s The Budgerigar Society World Championship Show alone. Since then some 3000 first editions have been sold. Now that first edition is out of print, second hand, signed copies in good condition, currently change hands at in excess of ?240, when available.

Demand for a second edition soon built up again and Gerald responded by publishing the second edition in October 2006. This edition has been brought up to date since much has changed in feather structure and the desired show features that make up today’s top class showbird. This has been reflected in changes to the International “Ideal” Model depicted in full colour as well as over fifty new photographs to illustrate the best budgerigars in the world at the moment.

Five more chapters have been added and all advertising by the best and keenest fanciers, worldwide, from whom to buy quality birds, has been completely revised. The cover of “The Challenge” has been changed to a terracotta colour to differentiate it from the first (dark green) edition. The quality and size is identical.

First edition purchasers would be advised to consider getting this second edition to bring themselves up to date.

Due to increases in printing costs and overheads, the price for this specialised second edition volume has been set at ?47 (Pounds Sterling).

To date over 4500 copies of the second edition have been sold, which has established, beyond doubt, the popularity of The Challenge (which the hobby world wide now regards as “the bible” on this subject).
