CDC warning: Stop kissing chickens

The Centers for Disease Control want people to stop kissing and snuggling their chickens!

It may sound crazy, but over the past 25 years, 13 percent of chicken-related salmonella cases were due in part to people kissing their chickens.

Half of chicken owners also admit to snuggling their baby chicks and keeping chickens in the house.

Children can also be salmonella incubators if they handle chickens and then forget to wash their hands.
