Thanks for this question. Well usually there are no significant health risks to people in NEIGHBOURING houses from people who raise chickens. Usually there is a health risk for the people who are actually raising the chickens in the form of contracting salmonella which is a bacteria which can cause diarrhea and enteric fever/typhoid. However that risk is also low, while there is a theoretical risk of contracting bird flu but that too again is low because if the area where the chickens are being raised isnt endemic for bird flu that again is not a significant risk. So all in all, there is no significant health to the neighbours of the person who is actually raising teh chickens, although the person who is raising them is at a slight risk of contracting salmonella.
