Just before we sign off, here is one Farm Safety Tip you need to know;
Remember to always wash your hands or use hand sanitiser immediately after handling live poultry or eggs, even if it’s only been for a few seconds. The chicks may not be sick but could be carrying germs that can make humans ill. #FarmSafety #SafetyTips #Farmcrowdy pic.twitter.com/D5GklsatMi
