    If a hen lays an egg And the hen has avian flu would this be dangerous and would infect other species if you eat it

    It's very unlikely that your hen has avian influenza. [​IMG]

    As long as you cook the eggs properly, I doubt you'll catch it by eating the eggs.

    Quote:What makes you say that? Have you seen the bird? I didn't see any symptoms listed. Has the bird/flock been tested before? Immunized? Please let me know what makes you come to that conclusion. If you know something I don't know.....I just may be out of a job! lol

    BAkyARDchiks is in australia like me and it is safe to say we don't have avian flu here so it is unlikely for his chickens to have it.
