    Duck pen smell!

    Hello, I have my duck pen on cement with a thick layer of straw. When it gets wet, it gets this strong swamp like smell and it can be bad. Does anyone know a way to help this? Maybe something different than straw? Do coop deodorizers really work? Thanks!

    Egg Box in Garage

    I’m building a new home. It will have an attached garage. I have an idea to make an egg box built into the wall of the garage (kind of like a dog Door ;). My plan is just to have 3-5 chickens in a shed just outside the garage, and the egg box will be in the wall of the garage. My contractor is...

    Sulfur Eggs?

    Why do my Roosters Stink?

    I have 2, 13 week old cockerels, and they reek to high heaven. They're not sick, and they don't do stuff my pullets don't do. I thought maybe all chickens smelled bad so I grabbed a couple of the girls and took a good whiff, but they don't have any sort of unpleasant odor. I can't even get near...
