    I know this isn't really a question about chickens but it has to do with chickens. Today I realized what looked like a rash on the backs of my hands but it doesn't itch or anything and it wasn't there before my chicks started hatching and I started messing with them. I always washed my hand after really good thought, but can the chicks give you something like this? If so what is it?

    What type of bedding are you using in your brooder? You may be having an allergic reaction to the bedding.
