A warning today from the Deschutes County Health Department. Spokesperson Heather Kaisner says they just confirmed a case of salmonella linked to a Deschutes County resident handling baby chicks. " I think we just want to put out a warning to people that with the Easter holiday and spring coming, that baby chicks can carry the salmonella bacteria and we have just confirmed one case of salmonella that has been linked to baby chicks. So its just really important that people do take preventative measures if they do decide to purchase baby chicks.“ While it could make a cute picture to have babies and little kids playing with baby chicks; health officials don't recommend it.  They say anyone five or younger should not handle the chicks because of salmonella risk. Always wash your hands with hot soapy water after handling chicks and cleaning their cages. Most salmonella cases are mild, but in some rare and extreme instances can even lead to death in people with compromised immune systems.
