    I have bacterial pneumonia. I am on anti-biotics.

    But, I am expecting a new batch of babies tomorrow. How likely is it that I could infect them? I will have been medicated for three days. Should it be OK as long as I keep my distance from them for another few days??

    You will be fine. They will be fine.

    I hope you feel better. Good luck.

    Thank you. I checked with several others who said I am probably not contagious anymore to humans or chickens so all is good.


    (I don't think I am going to tell DH and the kids though! They need to keep thinking they have to take care of the chickens for at least a few more days!) LOL!!
