Description

Chicken feathers themselves do not pose many allergens, but more the dander that comes from them. Dander is the dust that collects within the feathers. They can spread when the bird becomes active and move their wings.  

Symptoms could include:

•  Hay fever

•  Itchy, watery eyes

•  Sore throat

•  Coughing

•  Sneezing

•  Breathing difficulties

A positive allergy test should be discussed with your physician.
