    We have a grumpy old Parrot - are there any "chicken illnesses" that could spread to our parrot? What precautions should we be taking?

    The coop is quite far from the house, and we will make a point of washing hands etc when coming indoors. Anything else we need to be cautious of?

    You could also have a pair of coop shoes, so you aren't walking through the coop and run, then walking through your house. Those are a good idea, anyway. After big coop cleaning days, just toss your clothes in the laundry and hop in the shower.
