    just wondered if the pollen affects chickens or turkeys? will it make them sick, will they have "sinus" problems from it, will it make them have a "cold"? just curious!!!!!

    i would assume (though i dont know) so. any bits of anything inside anyones nasal passages is going to have some sort of irritation factor. but as far as an allergic reaction, i cant say
