Ever since a few days after I brought my baby chicks home, there's been some...intestinal upset going around in my family. My three-year old started the day after the chicks came home, with nausea and diarrhea. DH and I had some of the diarrhea, but quickly recovered. The wee one improved in a few days, but has hung onto the diarrhea. Now...it's quite possible he just picked up an especially tenacious stomach flu while out at the playground or somewhere. We're aware of basic biosecurity, and have tried to be as careful as possible with handwashing and ESPECIALLY being careful if he actually has contact with the baby chicks. They're in the basement now, and he's only gotten to see them a few times, with careful sanitation every time. Still, is is possible he could have picked up something from them? Or am I being paranoid and blaming the poor chooks for something entirely human, and entirely coincidental? Thanks so very much for helping put my fears to rest!!!
