    Back when I used to keep parakeets, I was told that you can't kiss them because it could give them liver disease.

    I'm not going to give my chickens any diseases by kissing them, am I?

    I kiss mine all the time on the head. lol We are all just fine! I don't allow my son who's three to kiss them because I'm worried that someone may have gotten their head pooed on and I know to look for that lol.

    Kissing is fine, just dont use tongue. [​IMG] It will hurt if her beak clamps down. [​IMG]
