    I woke up this morning with pink eye. Can I give it to my chickens? What about my chick-in-residence, Peepers? He lives in my kitchen currently. Do I need to avoid handling/feeding him for a couple of days? My button quail? Thanks, I'm really worried right now.

    Thanks Barnyard. I have no idea how I got this, but yuck! My eyes itch, hurt, and are runny. At least I already have the meds.

    I know how you got it. If my memory serve's me right, there is a little man there that is between the ages' 8 and 12, didn't he have this a couple of weeks ago? I believe that is where you got it from.


    As far as the chicken's go, I do not think you have to worry about them getting it.
