If you or someone you know is raising some hens for eggs or more, then share this LINK re cleanliness and avoiding illness. Wash your hands and watch the transference of that chicken poop about your property.
“Salmonella can be found in the intestines of chickens. That means that their droppings can be infected. And because chickens are often in a confined space, there is a good chance that their feathers, feet and beaks also have Salmonella on them just from their walking around in their environment.
The germs can also get on anything they come in contact with – their cages, coops, water dishes, hay and dirt.
In other words, just by working with your chickens, you can get Salmonella on your hands, shoes, clothes, etc. And this creates the environment that allows you to get infected.”
