    I just heard at the feed store that chickens are dying from EEE . I have one chicken with avian pox, and now another loosing her feathers, pale comb, but no visible pox. Does anyone know what EEE looks like in a chicken? I have the sick chickens isolated from the coop

    Also, is it safe to eat the eggs from what looks like healthy chickens?

    Birds with EEE wont survive to lay eggs. Here's a link, scroll down to EEE and read about it if you wish:
