I was checking out Tractors Supply's website and they had a section about raising baby chicks. They expressed a serious concern over salmonella which truth be told, scared me a bit.
For example, this is some of what they were saying: that you should always keep your poultry outside and never handle their poo without gloves on and to also be very careful with children around the chicks and make sure they wash their hands after handling and so on and so on.
I've read numerous posts where people have their chickens actually live indoors with them.
Is Salmonella really that much of a concern or is it simply a matter of common sense, clean practices?
