Basically in general the consensus is the proteins cannot pass into eggs but there is high chance of contamination.

Eggs themselves are also an allergen.

But the research is unclear.

That's the summary.

Good info, I read those too. The only clear research was with soy isoflavones, not gluten, and there were very small amounts at that.

Lots o chickens!

From your link......

Question: Are eggs gluten-free, or do they sometimes contain gluten?

Answer:

Eggs in their shells should be close to perfectly gluten-free, although some very sensitive people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity have reported problems with eggs from chickens fed a heavy diet of gluten grains (more on this in a minute).

And agin from YOUR link---------->>>>>

 

Now, as I said earlier, a few people who are quite sensitive to trace gluten have reported glutenings (i.e., gluten reactions) when they eat eggs from chickens that eat mainly wheat and barley. These same people are fine when they eat eggs they obtain from farmers who don't feed their chickens gluten grains.

I am going to put my chickens on a GF diet and see what happens. I will post back in a week or 2.

Have Reported. Keyword. Anecdotal evidence is not reliable, because people are unable to tell what made them sick. You can actually psych yourself in and out of illness. If you give sober people a substance that is not alcohol, and tell them it is alcohol, they will begin to think they are, and act, drunk.  "Have reported" does not mean that those proteins exist in the eggs. If you are truly allergic to eggs (meaning at risk for anaphylaxis), I do not advise trying this without consulting your allergist who diagnosed you.

Excellent example of why we don't pick and choose words and quote them out of context.

Aside from what others have mentioned, both articles conclude the scientific research is unclear. Additionally, both stress the danger of cross contamination, such as touching chicken feed with gluten.

There are quite a few ways to handle this. No doubt removing chicken feed with wheat from your environment is a good step. Seeing your allergist would yoeld advice that is perhaps more to your standards. I am not sure what you excepted from a chicken forum on this topic. However I get the feeling you are disappointed.

Please note that I have no interest in an argument on this topic.

I think that a person allergic to specific grains should avoid those grains in feed for their birds, because there's no way to avoid inhaling and contacting the dust from the feed, and in the coop.  Mary
