    I have a friend who really wants to get chickens. But...her husband is allergic to chickens. I think he is faking it...who can be allergic to these sweet animals? Does any one know of ANY way she could have chickens? (Outside of telling her husband to just not go outside)

    I know 2 young men who are allergic to anything chicken. Feathers, eggs, and meat. They go into anaphylatic shock.

    Dunno if anything will work. Depends on how allergic he is and to what.
