    The chicks are in the garage ready to move to their coop...I noticed today that some of them were sneezing. I have a 10 yr old cat that just started sneezing yesterday bit has seemed to be better today. I am very careful at washing and disinfecting everything after cleaning their "stuff" just wondering if the chicks might get my inside animals sick somehow...I am new to this and never had chickens before.

    Unlikely. Not a lot of illnesses spread across species lines. My dogs have been the clean up crew for poop for 5 years. They are still kicking.

    Good luck.
