I wonder, pamering and taking care of a very sick chicken now getting better, is it safe for humans to be exposed and in my case having this chicken in my house. she suffered from botulism we think but it also looked a lot like Marek's because of her paralysis. anybody with some good advise.? I know avian flue is one but are there others and what precaucions to take. My chicken is realy affectioned and i have been always very close to her and still am. Another chicken ones had trouble breathing and I tried to help her by blowing my air into her nostrils. please don't laugh, i love to safe them if possible.
