I read your page re antibiotic resistant bacteria in chicken manure. Here in Victoria Australia farmers are allowed to use it in a dry form on their fields. my daughter-in-law lives on our old farm with horses and a couple of cats. Recently she contracted viral meningitis, and was told it was caused by contact with birds feces.
This had her thinking I don't keep birds but what about the chicken manure spread all over the place next door. For many years they have grown celery and used dry chicken manure to top up the beds. During the summer there was a constant swirl of dust and the smell of ammonia was really bad, do you think there could be a connection? interested in your opinion.
