I'm on day 2... So far my chicks are digging it, the older girls eat it but lose interest and go search for bugs. Basically their usual My OE has laid 2 days in a row, which isn't her usual, she's an every other day type of layer. I honestly don't think it smells, I have a very sensitive smell and I've yet to nice much besides a faint smell when my head is right on top of the bucket. I'd have to put my whole head in to even notice it a lot. I'm honestly really liking it so far!
