Am I taking a chance? My birds free range when I'm home and about. I have 4 hens and the yard (fenced by 6' cedar) that they can play in is about 25' x 100' . I also have a wildbird feeding station not 20' from their run. When I let them free range, they go over to the the bird feeder and scratch around the dirt right below. I use all around weather suet in little cages. I thought I read here somewhere that you really should have those feeders elsewhere, or I might be taking a risk for my chooks to pick up a nasty disease from them. Is this right? Should I really be concerned? They ( my chooks ) have been under the feeder scratching around for awhile, and everyone seems fine. I even have my newest BR letting her aggressions out by chasing the wild birds out of the yard. Does she know something I don't know? What are you're opinions on this?
