11 Tips for Keeping Healthy, Stress-Free Chickens

Beware disease-transmitting dangers.

Many chicken diseases are carried on clothing, shoes, and hands. When you visit other people’s chickens or go to a show, you should change your shoes and clothes and wash your hands before tending your flock. Also think twice about inviting visitors who have chickens of their own to visit your flock.

If you have rare or very valuable birds, you may want to limit visits. The more visits, the greater the chance that a disease will be carried into your flock. All borrowed equipment, such as carriers, should be disinfected before and after use.
