Can a human get worms from an infected chicken?
Does anyone know if a human can get worms from an infected chicken? Just wondering how concerned I should be in letting my children handle the birds as they sometimes scratch them. We have about 15 eight week old chicks that we are taming to hand. I haven't wormed them and they free range. Should I be concerned about them getting anything? We all wash our hands after handling the birds and treat scratches as we normally would. Anyone have any advice or thoughts?
