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