I'm looking DIRECTLY at you Dr. Trina.

According to King5 the CDC is saying that if you are kissing chickens, you are going to get sick.

There's a link between salmonella cases and families raising poultry in their backyards. 235 cases were reported just in the last month alone! If you keep pet chickens, there is NO making out with them allowed.

Make sure you wash your hands after handling the dirty birds, and no kissing the chickens.
