    Monday I found out I have pneumonia, is it possible for my chickens to catch it from me? I have been on antibiotics since Monday afternoon.
    I have birds ages 11 days - about 1 year old.
    Maybe I'm being silly to worry about it, but I don't want to make my birds sick.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. [​IMG]

    There are very few things that can pass to your chickens from you. Pneumonia is NOT one of them. They will not get sick from you.

    Cool.
    I wasn't sure and thought I'd ask a question instead of worrying about it needlessly [​IMG]
