Pet chicks and chickens

Getting children a baby chick or two for Easter may sound adorable, but it's a salmonella infection waiting to happen, the CDC warns. If you get your child such a pet, or you’re raising backyard chickens, be sure to supervise hand washing before and after touching the chicks or anything in their living quarters. Don't let your child kiss the chicks. And if your child is not yet five years old? Pick another pet, the CDC suggests.
