    For many years, we had a bird feeder in our yard that was well visited. I am wondering if it is dangerous to allow my chickens to peck in the dirt that is directly below where the bird feeder was. Is there a time frame when disease may no longer be viable? I am not aware of sick birds at my feeder, but you never know.
    Should I be concerned? At this point I have kept them away.
    Thanks Kathy
