    So my husband and I both ate 2 eggs each from our flock Saturday. We just got our hens last week from a local reputable farm and thesr are the first eggs fr them we have ate. Mine were fully cooked- he likes his runny. Well,I feel fine. However, he has shown signs of *either* the stomach flu or salmonella. High fever, aches, chills. Diarrhea. I can't remember the last time he was sick- he had great immunity from living outside of the countru several years ago- which makes me lean towards salmonella.

    Have any of y'all gotten salmonella from your eggs? If so - how did you treat the chickens of it?

    Thanks
    Sarah

    You can take a fecal sample from your chickens to your vet and they can test to see if they are positive or negative for Salmonella.

    Sarah, Salmonella Gallinarum, Fowl Typhoid, is treatable with Amoxycillin, Potentiated Sulponamide, Tetracyclines and Flouroquinolones
