I picked up my chicks from TSC as well. :( I got my silkies a month ago and the BAs 3 weeks ago. I wonder if they came from Mt. Healthy :( I always wash my hands after handling the chicks and taking care of them. I know that anything that lays an egg or came from an egg can carry Salmonella. I have lizards and always wash my hands after handling and taking care of them. I tell my kids if you touch them to wash your hands and explained to them about Salmonella.
How can Mt. Healthy still be in business if they keep having health issues? Do I need to worry about my chicks being sick? What does Salmonella do to chicks?
