    I personally don't want someone else with chickens caring for mine unless I know they'll be good about changing their footwear. I used to take care of my neighbors chickens for them but never asked them up take care of mine.

    I am the same way. I have shoes that I only wear around the coops and pens. I have my birds tested yearly by the state and my testing was done recently. I usually get the birds and put them in cages and back into their coops after they are tested. This time the testing agent was early. I had most of the birds ready and she offered to help me get the rest but I told her that I appreciated her offer but I don't know where she has been and prefer to get the birds my self. She said she understood.
