chickens in horse hay/ chance for salmonella with my IR horse


Daisy Shepherd
 

at my boarding place, they have free roaming chickens.  tonite as my horse ate his soaked hay( 4# is what he gets soaked  other is dry), there were 3 chickens scratching and eating with him. my concern is salmonella;  do i need to worry?   my history : about 20 yrs ago my morgan mare had salmonella that probably came from chickens and ducks that frequented her living space;  vet diagnosed;  she was extremely ill, vet thought she might die; she did not but was extremely ill for about 10 days before she started to improve.  i did change boarding places.   i would not choose to have my tiko  go through this.  can some one with knowledge on this please give me some advice?  thank you so much, daisy and tiko
