Nicole Alderman wrote:Hmmmm, the only thing I can think of is that ducks poop on their eggs a bunch more than chickens do. Perhaps the first time you washed the eggs, you didn't use hot water or somehow some feces got into the eggs. Perhaps it's some sort of microorganism in the duck poop that messes with you? That would explain why even going near their house would mess with you.
The only thing I can think of is, have you tried fermenting their feed? Perhaps that would change the bacteria/fungi in their feces and it wouldn't aggravate you?

In my case, my dislike of the building might also be attributed to living more than 40 years in a dry desert, so Missouri was just plain old musty and dank to me, even outside.

We may wind up finding a bit of land and building a home on it, and we're doing some research into what the best kind of house would be. It would be a medium to large home (probably 1500+ sq ft)Our area does have problems with tornadoes, flash floods, lightning, not a lot of soil above bedrock, heat, cold/snow, and humidity. We would like the home to be as non-toxic/natural as possible, so I don't like the idea of off-gassing, old tires, plastic, and bad chemicals everywhere. Any advice and insight would be appreciated.
