Join USDA's Healthy Harry Twitter Chat on Nov.1!

Hello!  I'm Healthy Harry (Healthy_Harry), spokesbird for the USDA’s Biosecurity for Birds educational campaign!  

If you are a bird lover, have backyard poultry, or are thinking about starting up a flock, please join me and my friends at the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) on a Twitter Chat Tuesday, November 1, from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. EST.    CHAT HASHTAG (IDENTIFIER):  #HHChat

You can get your questions about bird health answered by APHIS veterinarian, Fidel Hegnig, and share valuable information about your flock.  Andy Schneider, the renowned “Chicken Whisperer” will be joining us too!

The Twitter Chat is a special activity of Bird Health Awareness Week, an annual observance held this year October 30th through November 5th.  For more information, please visit

Please give my friend Charlotte (see below) a squawk by return email and let her know if you will join us and if you will share this invitation with other poultry lovers who might be interested.  Thank you!

Attached are detailed instructions for joining the Twitter Chat.
