I tried researching it online but couldn't find anything. I'll ask my midwife what she says when I see her next but that won't be for a few weeks.

Interesting note, my coop smell has not bothered me even at the height of my morning sickness. My friends coop however makes me want to gag still. Thinking it is one of those things where you are ok with funk you know.

I checked into safety issues early on in this pregnancy and couldn't find any reason not to.
I helped "process" 9 ducks today. My cousin and a friend of his came to help and did all the catching and throat-slitting, but I plucked a lot of feathers and pulled out a lot of innards. It was exhausting, but felt fine otherwise. I am going to finish the cleanup tomorrow. The meat-ducklings' coop did get awful stinky, and I'm looking forward to a bit smaller poultry population in the coming weeks.
