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

Chickens and ducks do pose a Salmonella risk https://www.cdc.gov/salmonella/backyardpoultry-05-20/index.html and it is estimated about 20% of chickens are infected. It would be wise to keep the chickens out of horse feeding areas. However, many horses carry and even shed Salmonella. Other potential sources are rodents, other birds. https://ceh.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/health-topics/salmonellosis
