    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    It is never good to drag in chicken poop into the house as there is always possibilities of worms and bacteria's that are in chicken poop. You might keep your birds in a run or a fenced off area that you only wear specific shoes into. This is how I do it. My birds are allowed to free range in a fenced off area and of course they have their run. I have a certain pair of shoes that I wear into these areas not only to keep my feet clean to enter my house but bio security reasons that I am not tracking other "things" into their area from wild birds and other poultry I keep.

    Good luck with your flock and welcome to ours!

    Welcome![​IMG] I'm glad you joined the BYC flock.

    You've received some good advice from Two Crows. I would definitely be concerned about dragging in chicken manure, as it can carry disease.

    Intro was edited before I got to see it, so don't know what the questions were about. Welcome to Backyard chickens.
