Hi there!

Rabies is a very labile virus and gets destroyed when exposed to air and the disease does not transmit by eating a chicken bitten by a wild animal.
Hope the information is helpful.

Take care!

It could happen, but that is a very rare method of transmission, not really worth concerning yourself over on a day-to-day basis, given that most animals do not have rabies. https://www.cdc.gov/rabies/transmission

If the puppy belonged to your friend, you should ask if the puppy has been vaccinated against rabies.
