    I just started with my chickens (12 BR pullets). My wife is telling me that she has friends who know people that have gone blind because of chicken poop in the air that they were around all the time. The eye disease is called Hystoplasmosis. Has any one ever came across this, and is there any truth in what my wife is hearing?
