make my kis sick and they wer disease ridden animals I have 6- 41/2 week old chick living in my garage and DH came home from work today complaining about how nasty they were and that a guy at his work told him we shouldnt have them because they can make our kids sick. I have a 2 y/o and a 4 month old, my 4 month old doesnt go near them and the most my 2 y/o does is feeds and waters them (does the same with our dog ). I have already moved them to the garage for DH because he didn't like them in the "extra" area in our kitchen that we put animals in, dog food/water and crate etc. I told him as soon as he builds me a coop Ill put them out back! Its already in the 80's/90's during the day, we're in Florida and they have been free ranging for about a week now.
