Hi - I read a little bit about this "bird poop disease". have any of you had problems with chicken diseases. I have two little kids (3 and 1) and I remind the older one to not put her hands in her mouth about one million times a day. But, she still needs reminding. The baby - i don't let him touch the chicks because he puts everything in his mouth - not just his hands. But he crawls on the grass and so do the chicks. Ahhh. It grosses me out.
