    I like clean, fresh barnyard smells like chicken, horses, and cows. Poorly-maintained coops and billygoats are a different matter... {gack}

    BTW, greyhound people say the hounds' feet smell like fritos. :)

    You guys are nuts. Me, too. Chickens, horses, cows, AND dog's feet, though NOT chicken-poop-enhanced-dog-breath.

    Mine smell like chicken. Now that I got that obvious snide remark out of the way...I love the way they smell as well. Baby chicks smell great too. I gotta admit, I feel a little strange talking about this, but I guess its a part of the chicken fever that we are all infected with.

    Mine snuggle around my neck in the evenings and you can't help but smell how clean they smell. I guess I'm guilty of smelling their breath, too since sometimes they put their heads in front of my nose and breathe out. It smells clean and warm, too...

    Dog feet - those smell like Fritos. Seriously. Take a sniff! Not something I'd share at a dinner party for a variety of reasons but hey, amongst like-minded peeps, what the heck [​IMG]
