Have you ever been sickened by your chickens? By their eggs or meat? By their parasites? By cleaning up after them? Have they ever injured you or your family members or other animals? Have you ever had suspicions that you were sick because of chickens? I have been looking up ways to treat recent parasite problems with my chickens, and it made me wonder if people ever get sick from their chickens. The only time I've ever been ill was from cleaning out coop shavings which resulted in sinus problems. The dust mask is now my friend during coop cleaning .
