    While I don't get the opportunity to frequently enough to honestly call it a hobby, one of my favorite things to do is training parrots. :blush:

    Trust me, it is not that hard. As long as you continue to pour in the stock one ladle by one ladle, it should not be burn.

    Why would you do training parrots? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Same reasons you'd train a dog or something - to make it do what you want, and to develop companionship with it.

    You don't need to make them a circus star or anything, but there are a few things I'd strongly insist that all parrot owners train their birds to do:

    Socialization - ...with humans, that is. This is probably the single most important. Too many parrot owners just keep their bird in its cage 24/7, which imo is animal cruelty (birds are not decorations). Socializing should be the first step after getting a bird, to teach it that you aren't a threat to it; this will stop it from doing things like biting, and make it happy to hang out on your shoulder or be handled (a bird asking to be pet via body language puts the cuteness of things like kittens to shame!).

    Step up & Recall - "step up" is exactly what it sounds like: if you hold your finger (or arm, depending on the size of the parrot) horizontally near the bird's belly, step up training will teach it to use YOU as a perch, and it will step up on to your arm. Recall is the long-distance version of that: the bird can be trained to fly to you and land on an extended arm. Especially useful if the bird manages to get out of the house and finds its way into a tree or something - if it's recall trained, it'll be fairly simple to get it back to safety... otherwise you'll have to bait it back down with food, which can be an all day process.

    Potty Training - Yes, parrots can be potty-trained! ...this tidbit of info has seemed to escape many bird owners, but unless you like cleaning bird $#!+ off of your clothes, furniture, floor, etc, training it to fly to a designated point (like in it's cage, or on a portable perch with a base made to catch it's $#!+) and do its thing there - this will save you all kinds of nastiness!

    ...those are the basics. There're a plethora of 'for fun' things you can teach parrots to do, that don't necessarily serve a purpose.

    Anywho, parrots rock! When I can afford it and have adequate space and free time, I'm hoping to some day get a macaw - preferably a pair of Blue Throated to help contribute to repopulation efforts (they're critically endangered); otherwise a Blue and Gold, which would be a more ethical breed to obtain solely as a pet. :D

    I'm right handed but use forks and knives like a left handed person (fork in my right hand and knife in my left)

    As a lefty, the fork stays in my left hand. The knife is more an accessory to the fork, so I think it's normal for the fork to stay in your dominant hand.

    Unless we're both doing it backwards. /shrug.

    My Xbox gamertag (original Xbox) was "Jedi Outcast" until Microsoft made me change it. Apparently LucasArts didn't like that too much. I had only chosen it because I couldn't think of anything else and it was before I earned a new nickname in high school and another in college.
