It makes sense that I want to wash my hands before and after handling, feeding, and otherwise dealing with baby chicks. I can wash my hands in the house, but the chicks are in the detached garage and it would be nice to not have to walk back and forth just to wash hands. There's no water source near the garage, either. I've heard some suggestions of using hand sanitizer, but I don't want to use the chemical-y stuff. Does anyone know of an herbal hand sanitizer that would really work? I found a recipe (for general use) using aloe vera gel, rubbing alcohol, and essential oils. Any concerns over the chicks being exposed to specific essential oils and/or herbs? Any recommended herbs? Thanks!
