I'd like to know more about it. I'd like to know what you all think about the guidelines. I know that we don't fully follow them. It is mostly because we are new to chickens and haven't been able to get things fenced in the way we would like. What we had planned out turned out to not be the best idea so we are working on things as we can. I talked to a friend about the fact that I had ordered some waterproof disposable booties for when others came to visit and that I thought they were a neat idea. I wasn't telling her she needed to buy them, just that we used them at a farm we visited and I thought they were at neat idea for visitors. The response I got was that the idea of doing anything different to try and prevent disease from being brought to your flock was just stupid. It really bothered me and got me thinking that I should ask what others do and find out how others feel about the guidelines. I am new to this so maybe I am not reading things right.
