I'm trying to be more self-sufficient right now, and I was wondering, can you feed chickens food if it's been on your plate? Can my chooks get diseases from me? I feel perfectly healthy, and my chickens are exposed to me on a regular basis. They already probably have resistance to my germs. What do you think? Do you do it? Note: I won't be putting the ACTUAL PLATE I ate off out with them. My family would kill me if I did.
