Backyard Chickens & Salmonella: Keep it in Perspective | The Chicken Chick®
The CDC has said that “people can get sick with Salmonella infections from touching live poultry or their environment. These birds can be carrying Salmonella bacteria but appear healthy and clean and show no signs of illness.” Right, just like humans and other animals. Salmonella can be transmitted by all animals all the time. To say nothing of the ever-present risk of using the restroom.
