Well I got my first negative comment on my facebook regarding my chickens. Someone told me how irresponsible it is to have my chicks in a brooder in my home. And this person went on about how I will get diseases (because they are wild animals) and how I am going to get my granparents (who I visit often) sick. She really annoyed me. Because I am extremely careful and hygienic with my chicks. I even change my clothes if I get pooped on. And that's often! Besides they are only two weeks old, they are not kept in the main living space, and they will be moving into the basement and then outside as soon as they are ready. And I know I am not the only person who has brooders or chickens in the house. I get that she was trying to look out for me. But I hate when people assume I havent done my homework. Especially considering that I am diagnosed OCD and have real bad anxiety when it comes to germs ect. I have been washing my hands so much (because I can't help but handle the chicks) that my hands are so dried out. People just irk me and I needed a little rant. Do you remember your first "anti chicken" remark?
