    Our chicks are 4 weeks old and they are living in our dining room. They are getting kinda stinky regardless of a clean cage or not. Wondering if I could give them a bath and how?

    OP, Mine are the same age, and I notice mine too seem stinkier than my last brood. IDK if it's bc mentally I know they can't be put out yet with this cold weather or what but even right after I clean and scrub the bin out they're smellier than usual! I dont usually use DE for my little chicks unti labout 10 weeks, but I've been using it for a week already trying to cut smell! My whole room makes me wanna gag when I walk in!
