January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

January 2021 POTM Contest!!!


This month's theme is Training: The Good, The Bad, and The... 'What the HECK Just Happened?!?'



This month we're focusing on training sessions. Ever capture a flawless moment of training? Or the ultimate training fail? Or how about that moment of unexpected hilarity when your bird does the totally unexpected? Or even that 'bang-your-head-against-the-wall moment when you realize your bird's actually been training you?

Now you can share those prideful, touching, head-scratching, or downright hilarious moments with the rest of your Parrot Forums family! Please submit a photo, gif or short video (90ish sec limit) of your bird doing whatever it is he/she does during training sessions. Whether perfect, catastrophic, or hilarious, We want to see it!



Photoshop is allowed, though not required, for this month's contest.

No more than one entry per member, though you are free (and encouraged) to post as many related "just for fun" photos, gifs or videos as you'd like.

The winner will receive a Free One Year Premium Membership to Parrot Forums, and the winning photo/video/gif will be displayed on the Home Page for the following month!

Submissions will be accepted from today, January 1st through Friday, January 29th. (Dates may vary slightly depending on your local timezone) At the conclusion of the submission period, a 3-day poll will be held to determine the winner.

Good luck, everyone!



JFF!


The training video where Jolly mastered color-coded fetch:



My youngest son Ryan's first training attempt. (He was 4 or 5 at the time. His reaction at the end is priceless):

Oooooooo, Stephen, this is gonna be great!!! I love it, thank you! We have so many wonderful trainers here, but I'm predicting a big share of hysterical, epic fails too. After all, it's all about fun with our fids, right? Can't wait!

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

Thanks, Jon! And you've got it right. I'm hoping to see the whole spectrum of training experiences. Big wins and epic fails alike. (Because we all know most of the big wins are built on a foundation of epic fails. Lol!)

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

Wonderful way to kick off the new year, Stephen! Not gonna lie, don't do a whole lot of training but now I am motivated. Expecting high initial fail to win ratio, but it is all good fun!

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

Oh Stephen, what a clever theme you have concocted for us this month - quite brilliant! I shall not, however be posting any videos, because they would just be humiliating. HRH The Crown Princess says She is not best pleased with the progress hubby and I have made so far in training, and that She may have to resort to far more harsh disciplinary measures to make those lessons stick!

Here's a Just For Funsies (Lilly's fun, not mine!!)

Whooohooo....this is going to be soooo much fun Stephen. Thank you. I'll try to get a video of Ellie calling out 'MOMMY' and me running to her beckoning as she has me well trained to do. LOL

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

After lo these many decades, the only one who ever gets trained around here is yours truly. I shall look forward to sympathizing with fellow lackeys, victims and cuckolds of illicit rooster-wife affairs.

Hahahahaha! Most excellent, brother! Just make sure you capture any aspect of said fail to win ratio on photo or video, so we can share in the fun with you! Whoo-hoo!

No video is too humiliating, Lady M! Especially since we've all been there. Lol! But good to see Lilly has remained consistent and determined with your and your husband's training, despite her disappointment with your progress! Stay on them, HRH! They'll eventually get it! Lol!

Ah, my friend. But you forget that the training goes both ways. Pics or video of the vaunted RB's relentless attempts to train you are every bit as welcomed as the other way around. Perhaps even more so. Lol!
