    I am taking baby chicks to my sons class, and I plan to bring a hen. Last year he was in a classroom that had its own sink so kids could wash hands between touching. Now we won't have access to a sink. Will the antisceptic gel be enough to allow then to touch the hens, then touch the babies? The babies will be only days old. I could be safe and wait until we all are done with the babies to bring out the hen....that seems hard. What are your opinions? I could also bring a bucket of soapy water for kids to dunk their hands in? Sounds crazy, but you know you got to be crazy when your in love with chickens!
