Chicken hygiene with free ranging chickens

Recommended Posts

I've got 5 Silkie chicks that are 1 week old and I'm getting an eglu with run to house them. 

My question is. If I let them free range in my back garden would I then have to treat the entire area they free range in as potentially infected with salmonella?

I only ask as I play with my 3 year old in the back garden and it wouldn't be possible to do so if I had to take such precautions.
