Is there ANY illnesses that can be passed from chicken to human?
There are several but the risk is slim with good hygiene.
Highest risk comes from Thrush(candidiasis), Newcastle(conjunctivitis), Campylobacteriosis, Necrotic enteritis, Colitis and Salmonella.
Others are Aspergillosis, Chlamydiosis, Erysipelas, Mites, Lice, Farmer's Lung(from inhaling moldy grain) and Hen Worker's Lung(from inhaling poultry dust).
The risk of transmission from others is so low as to not be concerned
Wow that's alot. I try and wash my hands after messing with them, but every once in a while 'll forget.
Histoplasmosis can be an issue when cleaning out coops. Always wear a mask to prevent breathing in spores. There are several BYC members who have histoplasmosis and suffer greatly.
Oh wow! Thanks for the heads up! I've been cleaning out the coup with nothing...
