HDBC General Meeting – Green Treats Competition

With a St. Patrick’s Day theme, we’re having another parrot treats competition.  This time, all treats are based on green veggies and fruit.  Everyone is encouraged to bring in samples of their choice of green parrot treat.  

The panel of experts will be all the birds at the meeting.  Winners will be determined by the most eaten parrot treat.  First, second and third places can pick a prize from the HDBC prize bin.  

It’s a lot of fun for our birds and people alike.  

We will be meeting at a private residence again, so RSVP is necessary.  Please RSVP to Jennifer Catron, jrcatron@Q.com.
