My Chicken Smells
Featured Stories on BackYard Chickens
Can you tell where the odor is coming from? It can be a sign of respiratory illness, sour crop, or infection ( a cut or other skin wound that has become infected). Please tell us more about your chickens' living arrangements and diet.
they just roam around the yard and house... almost all my yard is cement and then i have a grass area on the side that they go , rock area that they move the rocks and a dirt area that i dont know what to do about because the dirt stays moist and i see mold in one spot..i dont know how to dry the dirt. we have a big tree that doesnt allow the sun to dry it... her nose is running again so i started her on dyrmamicine 10 yesterday... i feed them lay crumbles mixed with scratch.... none of my other chickens smell. should i give her a bath?
i dont have a big yard... i only have 5 chickens, 3 ducks and a rabbit... i do clean with bleach and sometimes fabuloso twice a week. sometimes more.. i clean all the time because i like it to look and smell nice. they are in the garage and in the house sometimes to cause we play and cuddle with them...
