    I've noticed several house finches at my bird feeders with conjuctivitis. The bird feeders are close to my chicken yard. Should I be worried that the finches will transmit the disease to my chickens? If the chickens start to show symptoms of the disease what is the best medicine to give to them?

    Thanks for any advice!
