Hi all, I have a flock of heritage birds I've been raising for meat. Today I harvested the first two birds and stopped there. The smell of their skin, once I had picked them, was positively offsetting, raising concerns about the safety of the meat as well as flavor. Their skin smelled like concentrated chicken coop. I suspect that the issue is that I've been using the deep litter method. Should I be changing the litter for meat hens weekly? Thanks!
