Ettestad said many chicks and young birds carry Salmonella in their droppings, and it is difficult to know if animals are carrying Salmonella because they will not usually show signs of illness. "While there are many le- gitimate 'reasons to purchase baby chicks to raise for food. we are asking feed stores around the state to strongly discourage people from buying baby chicks as pets, especially if they have young children," Ettestad said. Early symptoms of Salmo- water are not readily available. Adults should supervise hand washing for young chil- dren.
