Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Chicken are not susceptible to infection with HIV and so bestiality with chicken will not give you HIV.

Let me know if I could help further.

What is the origin of hiv why it is still debated
doctor
Answered by Dr. Prof. Kunal Saha 2 hours later
Brief Answer:
Scientific rejection of polio vaccine origin theory has not stopped debate

Detailed Answer:
Thanks again for writing back. There have been two theories of the origin of AIDS, one that it occurred through "natural transfer" of immunodeficiency virus from monkeys or chimpanzees to humans and the other that it occurred through iatrogenic transfer via contaminated polio vaccines used in XXXXXXX in the late 1950s. Claims that AIDS originated from trials of a polio vaccine in the 1950s are repudiated, but just won't go away as irrespective of contrary evidence a politics of science and vaccine opposers tend to keep the theory alive and therefore the meaningless debate ongoing.
