    Does anyone ever worry about this with their children? My daughters LOVE playing with our chickens, so I am wondering.
    They have a terrible cough right now, but so does everyone else we know, so I am not too worried.
    Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts about this...

    I have a friend who says she contracted histoplasmosis from chickens as a child. I used to play in our henhouse all the time when I was a kid and as far as i know never got anything from them. I really don't know anything about the condition though.
