    Hi All-I have 7 week old babies in my laundry room and I'm a little worried about Histoplasmosis. Should I have been wearing a mask while taking care of them? I'm really worried now.
    I wear one with my older girls but only when cleaning the coop but with the brooder, I just keep adding more shavings but they still scratch around etc...

    Should I be worried??
