Can I give my chicks the flu?

    My chicks are 3 weeks old. When they are climbing on me they try and come right up to my face, which I've started a new rule: no beaks or butts near my face. I handle them several times a day, and right now I have the flu, so I am concerned. Can they catch the flu from me?

    Get lots of liquids and eat some chicken soup. [​IMG]
