    Is it risky to deal with chicks/hens while pregnant? Thanks.

    No, it can't possibly harm the chickens.[​IMG]

    Oh, you meant harmful for you! Use proper sanitary precautions [wash your hands] and there shouldn't be a problem. There aren't many diseases that people and birds have in common to the best of my knowledge.
