A couple of much more recent origins:

This one, the article itself is in Spanish... but I can see what I would consider a methodological flaw in the conclusions just from the abstract.

This is another--

That's probably the most reliable looking of the lot so far, honestly.

Another about egg-allergy just in general--

With a bit of poking around on the net, it is often possible to locate free full-text copies of research articles. If you can't, a local library may have a database subscription service that will allow you to get one.

My son actually ate chicken before he tried egg. We have never had a problem with chicken.

My DS is extremly reactive to egg, but eats chicken all the time with no problems.
I agree that a second opinion is a good idea.

I was going to mention bird-egg syndrome as well - it's something that my allergist and I discussed. I have adult onset egg allergy though - that developed after (though not necessarily related to) two years of working very closely (daily) with unreleasable education raptors. (specifically owls and hawks)

Luckily however, at this point I eat chicken with no negative effects, save for some occasional mystery hives that can't necessarily be positively correlated with the chicken. I haven't heard of a link in egg allergic children though.

Apologies if this post is wonky and difficult to comprehend - I'm on painkillers from medical procedure complications.

Me: Allergic to soy, egg, barley, tomato, orange, apple, cherry, peach, pear, nectarine, banana, canteloupe, watermelon, severe OAS to others, insect bites (severe to horseflies), way too many environmental allergens, and asthma.

Thank you all for your input- CM I'll have to check out those links when I get home from work! Just wanted to let you know I'd put in a call to the allergist's office first thing this AM, and left a message for her, inquiring about trying chicken. Her nurse called me back a little bit ago and said that Dr. was fine with it now. She said there is only a small chance of reacting to chicken, but Dr. likes to wait until egg allergic infants are 12 months old to intro chicken. Connor was a year old two weeks ago, so we're in good shape! Looks like breakfast this weekend will be pancakes and chicken!  ;D
