    Possibly from the dust in the air (dust being chicken poop and such) from cleaning the coop . Too much dust of any kind can wreak havoc on your lungs . It's kinda like ( sorry I don't know how to spell it ) Hanta virus from mouse terds . [​IMG]

    The first thing that comes to my mind is Histoplasmosis. It's a fungus that can infect the lungs. Comes from bird(any birds) or bat droppings.

    Wear a dust mask when you clean the coop.
