    As DH and I were leaving for supper tonight, I noticed that my girls had something and were playing keep away like they do when they have a particularily yummy treat. Turns out it was a gored sparrow. We just cut the grass in the fenced in area and there's lots of birds snacking on the clippings. What can my girls catch from the bird and what do I needto do now? I'm wondering if they can pass something to my other chickens that are in a different area or if I should even be concerned? Any advice would be appreciated [​IMG]
