So I'm outside working on the chicken coop when my 2 year old drops the feeder right beside me.

POOF! Big cloud of chicken feed dust erupts right in my face. Couldn't help but inhale it.

I rushed over to the hose and hosed myself down. Washed my face, rinsed my mouth, washed my arms, came in and dumped all my clothes in the washer.

I am leaving for vacation in 3 days, my gluten reactions last up to 2 weeks. Please, please, please let me get off without a reaction just this one time. :(

Oh, that is dreadful, especially right before vacation! I hope that this will pass quickly. Where are you going on vacation?

Have you thought about making your own gluten free chicken feed ? Chickens do NOT need wheat and can do perfectly well on basic mixed grain/seed concoctions to which you can add soybean meal if you want to boost the protein, and salt/mineral mixes. I mix wild bird seed with black oil sunflower seed, but in the past I've also used a molasses/corn/oat mixture or wheat - free horse feed, and added other things to it.

Re the reaction: you can try knocking down the inflammation by taking something like an antihistamine and an anti inflammatory, ie, claritin or benedryl and advil, or you can try for herbal and go for ginger root and tumeric.

Hi everyone.

I took a bunch of digestive enzymes and a muscle relaxants and went to bed. Luckily I seem to have gotten away with it. My worst symptom of a reaction is 10-14 days of intense burning back pain so I am very happy and relieved that I didn't seem to react too badly. I'm a bit fatigued and my back doesn't feel great but that's okay, I can deal with that.

We are going over to Vancouver for 4 days (leaving tomorrow), then I'm home for 3 days during which I have to unpack, throw a birthday party for myself and my 16 year old son, do the laundry and repack and then I fly to San Diego for 6 days. So this would be a very bad time to get glutened.

I'm already so worried about eating in Vancouver because if something goes wrong then my trip to San Diego won't be as much fun. I'm also a bit panicky about eating in San Diego since I am flying and can't drag a cooler with me like I am to Vancouver.

I thought about making my own gluten free chicken feed but was told that a gluten free feed that is high enough in protein for the layers would be really expensive and there is nowhere local that I can even buy the individual components. All the feed/farm stores here sell premade feed and I sure can't afford to feed my chickens out of the bulk bins at the grocery store.

What you might want to do to be on the safe side is maybe wear a mask when your feeding them so if that happens again you aren't breathing in the dust through your nose and mouth. Have a great time on your trips and happy birthday to you and your son in advance.

I will next time. I wasn't even feeding them, my oldest son takes care of that. I was making a repair to the shelf that holds their feeder inside the coop at night (we have raccoons so their food dispenser comes in at night and sits on a shelf in the coop.) All I managed to accomplish was spraining my thumb, spilling their food (well,Lily did that) and mildly glutening myself. The shelf is still broken but I'm not going int here again until after my vacation!

    • Yeah I can not drink but as a chef the culinary uses for liquors, wines, and beer/ciders is amazing. Yeah I was thinking the same thing with the orange one using it in wither crock pot a bunch of chicken breast in, marinade them in prior to cooking is another thought. The apple one, I was thinking of doing a roast in it. you know how some people crock pot a roast in dr. pepper, root beer, or actual beer? I was thinking of doing a shoulder roast, or a boston butt in austin apple cider with some bacon and a bit of maplehoney in the pot along with half a sweet onion in there. Cook it say 8 hours, then drain it out and shred it then serve up with some sauce or plain depending on finished flavor. Thinking this would be nice to serve up with my bread for sandwiches, by itself, or perhaps over some chips. I also have this idea of using it to make a turkey or ham gravy, 8oz, simmer it down with trimmings and drippings from the holiday turkey/ham, the onion we cook in the pan with it chopped, 3 chopped roma tomatoes,  bay leaf, stir it with a rosemary twig, crush it all up with the back of the ladle,  then strain it out and pour in a gravy bowl with some chopped toasted walnuts in the bottom to be served with the dressing, and potatoes at new years for the family....Basing this on what I did last year with a dry sherry, but replacing it with the cider.
    • Austin's  are good ciders!   I have good luck using regular ( non- alcoholic) cider, especially for pork  roasts and pork chops!   but they do leave a bit of an Apple taste.  I think Austins has a dry cider?  That is less sweet, more beer- like.   They also have an interesting orange flavored one.  Might be good for chicken dishes.  The pineapple didn't taste very pineapples to me.
    • No milk in my diet. I don’t consume the major allergens. 
    • Thanks for the info. Great for folks that don't have a local source.  I found a place to get a good deal on both the big bag of jelly beans and licorice at my local Tractor Supply for 3 bucks each. Right now I am eating a 16 oz bag of their Bumble Beans that I got a Big Lots for $1.50. Those and Dark Chocolate baking chips are my worst food addictions.
    • Used some nice hard cider for a sub in beer can chicken last month for a cookout I was doing. I have been debating using it in place of beer in some marinades, baked goods, or roast that are cooked in a beer. I hear good reviews on them and I keep thinking the ciders might work I know I hear of people using AceCiders but I have not seen them. I used the following ones so far and only the apple. https://austineastciders.com/
