    Hello! We recently adopted a dog that is positive for Giardia. We had her for a few days before her fecal test came back. We have been diligent about cleaning her feces up after she deposits it, but I know that the cysts will still be in the yard. Our chickens are free range in our backyard, although we are trying to limit them as much as possible since finding out that dog was positive. Any risks of the chickens contracting giardia? I work at a small animal clinic, but we do not generally deal with chickens. I thought I would check in with this forum as well as our clinic.
    Thanks for any help!! :)
