A reminder of washing hands and following proper handling procedures.

By jasonw on Tue, Aug 20, 2013 - 2:46pm

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.

Washing hands

Ya I have to remind my kids, don't just wash hands before you eat, wash hands after handling the chickens before you touch everything else inside. 

One reason I like to hatch my own chicks, as well as grow vegetables out back, is to reduce the risk of bringing home a disease.
