OK...this is crazy I know! But, I have been in high gear raising my chickens, since back in the summer. I have loved everything about them, interacting with them and researching new topics concerning them. I have not gotten tired or complained one bit about scrubbing feeders & waterers, tending to them in the rain, raking up poop on just about a daily basis, washing eggs, etc. I have been on BYC more times than I'd like to admit, and I'm sure my Facebook friends are tired of seeing chicken pictures that I post. Well, I decided a few weeks ago, that I was going to hatch some eggs, bought an incubator, put them in and they hatched 4-6 days ago. I have the brooder set up in my bedroom, so I can keep them in a warm place, free of drafts, and can keep my dogs and cat away. Here's the deal. Since they started hatching, I have been so sick with nausea and don't care if I ever see another chicken. Yes, I'm taking care of them, and had even ordered more hatching eggs in the meantime. I DID NOT even want to incubate them, but felt obligated to, since I had payed for them. Everytime I picture eggs in the bator, I get a huge wave of sickness. Even reading about chickens on BYC makes me nauseated. I've never been one to have a weak stomach. I even did eggtopsies on the ones that didn't make it. I've lost that excited feeling now and I miss it tremendously. I know my chickens miss me coming around quite often. Anyway, back to the babies in the brooder, in my bedroom. I am feeding them medicated chick starter. Is it possible that their food is what's making me sick? There's good ventilation in there, but the door is always closed. Has anyone ever heard of humans getting sick from the medicated food?
