    Personally, after fishing two ecstatically happy chicks out of a septic tank once (they did NOT want to come out!), I don't think chickens can smell!
    Taste wise I think chickens like certain textures, like soft things, pasta, bread etc. But if you look at the things they eat, it does make you wonder...
