    Ok odd question , you will all have to forgive my ignorance! I have a young roo that’s gone rougue and I was thinking of eating him instead of just getting rid of him. I’ve never eaten one of my own anyway, I’m wondering if he is safe to eat ? It’s winter here and through the winter I water my chickens with a heated dog dish , this dog dish is open on top however , so the water gets poopy. We add fresh water every day , but I really have no idea how birds get salmonella . I’m thinking if they are drinking poo water they might possibly not be safe to eat??? Help?
