Yes I Am expecting a baby in the summer time. I am also the only care taker of my hens. I am concerned about any special precautions I need to take. I know about Taxoplasmosis (I know spelling) that you can get from cleaning the cat litter box. Is there anything I showed be careful with in regards to the hens. Their coop in the current damp cool weather is a little smelly and I would like to clean it. I have a particle mask but that is not going to protect me from the very small things that could harm my baby (bacteria). I do use gloves and wash after collecting eggs. I wear different shoes in the coop than in the house. Is there anything else I should be aware of? Any medical professionals out there or others with experience in this area?
