    The sharing of chicken knowledge is upon us urban farmers, Although this brings a question to mind. While people are touring coop after coop, is there risk or transferring any potential illness, virus's etc...?

    Yes there is.
    When we have coop tours here, most people have a boot bath with bleach in it, some put a brush and Lysol spray bottle out for use. None of us wear shoes we wear when we work on our chickens.
    When I allow visitors, I have disposable plastic booties I make everyone wear or they don't get near the chicken area.
