Did you know that even healthy birds, their eggs, and meat can all be sources of bacteria that can make you sick?
With some basic hygiene and handling practices, you and your family can care for your birds safely. All live poultry can carry harmful bacteria. These bacteria can spread to you from a bird, its droppings, or anywhere
the bird or its droppings have been – including children's toys and equipment. Children under 5, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more at risk. They should avoid
contact with live poultry as much as possible.
