    Is it safe to use Febreze in the coop to help stop oders

    That stuff is best used on fabrics. It will do very little besides possibly drive your chickens bonkers.

    I wouldn't. I've read about caged birds (parrots) becoming sick from Febreeze; don't know if it's true, but why take the risk?

    Anyway, the Febreeze wouldn't be stopping odors, it would just be covering them up. If your coop smells, you probably need more ventilation, and perhaps better sanitation.

    I do believe it is formulated to infiltrate fabric fibers, not things like wood or shavings or sand.

    I would say ventilation is your best friend. Also, fluffing up your coop shavings and raking (fluffing up) your run soil will help too.
