[Just got six chicks today, along with needed products, to give to my 57 year old mentally disabled brother who lives with me. He has been wanting chickens ever since he moved in with me 6 years ago. He spends 1 month each year on our father's farm in Nebraska and is very good at caring for the farm animals. There's not much he can do by himself but I am confident about the chickens. He is thrilled and spent all day watching them. Sent a picture of them to my daughter with 2 children under 5 years of age, and she promptly sent back a text saying we would not be allowed in their house and would not come to our house due to threat of salmonella. I am devastated! I have read all the precautions to take and actually, I won't have much contact with them since my brother will take care of them. I will have to supervise him of course. Would it be that much of a risk to see my grand kids?. Here it is 2 a.m. And I can't sleep because I am so upset!
