Baby chicks smell

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello, when cleaning my brooder today, I noticed some of my chicks smell like their feed. Is this normal?

Sounds alright. Better then smelling like something died or poop.

I have Bantam welsummers,   Bantam Olive eggers, MGB, LF Welsummers, BCM, BLRW, LF Buff and Golden Laced polish x Tolbunt, LF Sumatras, Bantam Sumatras, d'anvers, CCL, Bantam wyndottes   and bunch of free range birds

I'm not entirely sure, but it smells kind of sweet. I don't know really. Hopefully it's not the poop smell...

Even if you don't see it, their food is pretty dusty and they spend quite a bit of time pecking through it. I would be more surprised if they didn't smell like it.
