    I was wondering if anyone eats raw eggs anymore? I have a backyard flock of chickens and got ducks this year, and when I was growing up my grandma would make us an eggnog drink in the morning with raw eggs and milk. I loved it and am thinking now it was probably pretty nutritious, but of course there is salmonella to worry about. How likely are backyard chickens to have salmonella, and what did people do when there weren't all these rules about not eating raw eggs?

    I never eat raw eggs. Salmonella poisoning = very $$ at the hospital or worse. Not worth the risk.
