A reminder of washing hands and following proper handling procedures.

An article to help remind us all that we need to be aware of the potential hazards of handling livestock and know that people do get sick from cute baby chicks. 

An Example: ----------------------------------------

Violet (my daughter):  Can I hold the baby chickens?  

Me: Yes, Violet, you can hold the new babies, but please wash your hands after.  Before you go eating cherry tomatoes off the vine.

Time to Order Your Chicks

Anyone ordering chicks or thinking about it?  Now is the time of year to start planning.  

Check locally at your local farm/feed stores - they often carry chicks. If you live in the Northeast, contant your local Agway to see when they might be getting a shipment so you can reserve some.

Or place an order from a hatchery like Murray McMurray Hatchery. Note some breeds may be sold out for a month ahead so plan accordingly.
