    Ive been sick for about a couple of days and I have some eggies in the bator. Will that ruin them? Can they catch my cold? Will they die? Hmmm anyone turn eggs while sick with a cold or flu? I washed my hands of course and sanitizer. What about my breath? Anyone with advice? Thanks!

    Chickens don't generally get human illnesses. Humans can get poultry diseases without practicing good hygiene. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Good luck with the hatch.

    Edited because I can't spell today.

    I agree I think you will be just fine, good thing on washing your hands though.

    Thank goodness. My OCD should be thanked for that. My hands are very dry from washing them so often!!!
