October's POTM Theme
is

For this month, show off your birds doing tricks, playing tricks on you, eating yummy treats or dressed up in costume!


Photoshop is allowed and videos of 90 seconds or less are welcome.

The trick doesn't need to be anything elaborate, and can include them stepping up or anything else they have been taught to do.

For the treats, as long as they are healthy anything goes:)


*A reminder that you can upload your pictures straight to the forum now! This makes it so easy, and the pictures uploaded to the forum will be visible on the homepage if you win. Any photos linked from other sites (such as Imgur) won't be visible and would need to be uploaded to the forum upon winning.*

The contest will run until the morning (MST) of October 29th, and a poll for voting will go up then. The winner will be announced on November 1.


The winner will receive a Supporting Membership for a year,

and their photo will be on the forum home page as the winner for the month of October.

One official entry per person, but you can add as many Just for Fun entries as you want!

Please make sure to specify which one is your official entry, and remember to follow all forum rules for safety, etc.


Please include your bird's name somewhere in your post.

Did someone say "TRICK"?
They most certainly did, Master Wrench! I trust you and Salty have a little something up your collective sleeves? ;)
