Beware of live poultry and SALMONELLA!

If you are currently raising those cute little chicks and ducks as an Easter time tradition, please be careful to avoid contaminating you and your loved ones!  According to my research, salmonella is a naturally occurring bacteria found in fowl, and special care should be taken to avoid infection.  Wash your hands, keep animals and litter away from food preparation areas, and only allow small children to handle chicks under supervision.  For more info visit the CDC at http://www.cdc.gov/Features/salmonellababybirds/index.html
