Not sure how this works, but I ve got a question. I have about 20 chickens they are all in good health from what i can tell. I consider them to be free range i guess. They are in a large fence area with plenty of grass and a I let them out reguraly in whole yard. So they can do what they do best getting pest etc. So I have had these chickens for a year and have been eating there eggs with no problems but here lately the last time and today when I ate them( my mom, and my kids) didnt get sick, but I did very badly!!! I had some of my chickens in a local fair recently and they was tested for a virus or somethin not sure, everything was okay for them to be in fair. I havent wormed them yet. I can cook with eggs such as mixing with a meat loaf or coating for a breading to stick and use in cake mixes etc, havent noticed any issues there, so it seems to be scrambled eggs are the culprit. I really liked eggs so I bummed if now I cant eat them. I havent eaten store bought eggs in a long time. i am pretty sure the eggs are being fertilized as well, cause i hada hatchling recently. i read someelse forum where there daughter could eat the fertilized eggs. and had no reaction. I have different breeds , such as bantams, red hens, a brahma, some mixed breeds, could it be one particular breed I am allergic to? Because we scrambled them all together, use my duck eggs also. I got sick when I have prepared them and i got sick when some one else cooked them. So just now figuring out the conection. I wipe the eggs not rinse in water cause i read u can push the germs thru the pores of the eggs, also saw something about scalding for 5 seconds or longer not sure, but iam just looking for any opinions or advice and not eat eggs like that for now till i figure out what is going on.. Iam not sure if its aallergic reaction or salmonella, i am concerned cause I dont want my kids to get sick Like I have. please help with any thing that could be useful. I am 32, and havent been allergic to nothing. So far, have two kids, had gestsational diabetes with first and second i seem to be having issue with my blood pressure, Iam not over weight and I do exercise I wonder if having kids etc has drove my system out of whack for awhile. exp, my hormones!! So all ides welcome as long as they are not ridiculous.
