So we've been raising chickens for eggs, and meat, for over a year now. We've taken in birds from various sources, even adopted two male guineas in the process. The home raised chickens have never given my wife a problem, but commercial birds have given her quite a fit. We have harvested more than a few birds from the flock for eating, and there are no adverse effects. Any commercially purchased poultry gives my wife the most awful itching and redness in the hands when she handles the raw meat. The cooked meat has zero effect. The sensation is so intense that she can wash her hands in scalding water just to find a touch of relief. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas on what the commercial poultry producers are giving those birds to cause this? Thanks!
