Safe Handling

**Contact with live poultry(chicks, ducklings or turkeys),can be a source of human Salmonella

infections.

**Protect you and your family members from germs by practicing good biosecurity. By this, I mean WASH YOUR HANDS with soap and water after touching live poultry.

 **Those with weakened immune systems or very young children should NOT handle young chicks or poults.

**Do NOT let birds touch you anywhere around your mouth.

**Have a pair of shoes that you wear to your chicken pen or barn. Do not wear those same shoes in your home.

**AGAIN, WASH YOUR HANDS OFTEN WITH SOAP AND WATER!!!
