Outbreaks of Human Salmonella Infections Linked to Live Poultry in Backyard Flocks

posted 8/25/2017

CDC, USDA, and several states are investigating multiple outbreaks of human Salmonella infections linked to live poultry in backyard flocks ( These outbreaks are a reminder to always wash hands thoroughly with soap and water right after touching live poultry.

The Tri-County Health Department advised that Colorado has 18 confirmed cases of salmonella infection linked to “Back Yard Poultry.”

Live poultry, such as chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys, often carry germs such as Salmonella. After you touch a bird, or anything in the area where birds live and roam, wash your hands so you don’t get sick!

Owning backyard chickens and other poultry can be a great experience. However, children and other groups of people have a greater chance of illness from handling live poultry or anything in the area where they live and roam. Even handling baby birds displayed at stores can cause a Salmonella infection.

This CDC flyer about Backyard Flock has some useful tips to keep your family healthy and safe.

See the Residential Improvement Guidelines (RIGs) Section 2.2 (page 6) Chicken Coops/Houses for details about having chickens in Highlands Ranch.
