    [​IMG] I don't think chickens can pass on skin disease to humans but, maybe you could ask at the "emergencies, diseases, injuries, cures " thread

    Few chicken diseases are transmittable to humans, and no human-chicken disease that I can think of causes mange/skin problems.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Michael X2 Most chicken diseases are not transferable to humans. Do a google search to find this info if you can't find it here.

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock!
