I was just wondering if anyone knew about any risks to pregnancy with chickens etc. I'm in the early stages of pregnancy, and we keep chickens, quail and ducks. All are at the allotment, except one duckling who we are currently hand-rearing in the living room as it's mother rejected it. Am I ok to handle/feed/clean out the duckling now that I'm pregnant or not? Also, what about touching the animals at the allotment?
I've looked on the internet, but nothing is clear. And I think if I paid attention to everything on the internet, I'd wrap myself in cotton wool with regular whole body disinfecting for 9 months!!
