    WE are incubating eggs at my daycare. Some parents are concerned about the health risks the chicks may pose. Can anyone give me some information on the risks and how to prevent them?? Are they safe for the children to hold? They will be returning to the farm from which they came once we are done, how long would you recomend us keeping them?
