Hi, I searched this subject first and didn't see anything. Is it harmful for us to breathe the dust emitted by their droppings when we sweep out their coop? I just worry because my little ones are around the area also when we clean. It's sort of a family affair that we all do together. Yes I will admit, my paranoia prompted this post because I just saw Dr. G and they were talking about rat droppings that dried up and were swept up in the air and breathed in, causing a horrible disease called hantavirus and there is no cure, and you will most likely die if exposed to this. We don't wear masks or anything. Should we? And does anyone else have concerns on the subject? Thanks!
