Please excuse my stupidity in asking this/these questions. My first flock of chickens - 16-ish wks old. Today my son (21 y/o) woke up with a nasty chest cold--very sudden. I'm thinking back over the last few days activities and remembered -- please, don't laugh -- that our very healthy acting chickens have been sneezing. At least I think it's a sneeze .... sounds like when my German Shepherd bites down on his squeeky toy! I know chickens w/ avian flu strain don't really get the "flu" but my weird mind started connecting dots that probably don't even exist! What must I watch out for for avian flu? They have total freedom over 14 acres of woods and pasture, a 9x12 coop at night. Have always fed them Purina. And we always wash our hands when we come in. Are we safe? Are they safe? Thank you!
