Tennessee Department of Agriculture says Chicks and Ducks are cute, but not a good Easter Gift

 

Risk of human Salmonella infections from contact with live poultry

The Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – Cuddly baby chicks and ducks are as much a part of the Easter holiday as colored eggs and the Easter bunny. But even though they are fun to look at and kids love them, you should not give them as gifts because of the health risks involved.

Live poultry, especially baby poultry, commonly carry Salmonella germs. People can get Salmonella from contact with the birds or their environments. These germs can contaminate a bird’s body and anything in the area where they are displayed or housed, such as cages or coops.

Cuddly baby chicks and ducks should not be given as gifts.

APSU professor Jill Franks publishes new book on British and Irish women writers

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – A few years ago, Dr. Jill Franks, Austin Peay State University professor of English, decided to change up a course she taught on Irish literature. Instead of focusing on that country’s noted male authors, such as James Joyce and William Butler Yeats, she opted to teach about Ireland’s underrepresented female authors, including Elizabeth Bowen and Edna O’Brien.

Franks had recently taught a similar class on female British writers, and with these subjects fresh on her mind, she began noticing fascinating distinctions between the two cultures and how they handled the evolution of the women’s movement.
