I have been diligent about cleaning up poop every morning especially after noticing tons of flies. And my coop/run has smelled fine. Then the past 2 days we got TONS of rain and now the area that my chickens are in reeks. I can't even stand to be out there with them. I'm afraid people walking past my house can smell it too. Here's a picture of my coop/run.
the area of my yard that the coop is in is about 15×10 and fenced in and they get to free range all day just about every day. Is there something I can throw on the ground in that area that will help with the smell and be safe for the chickens to consume or is it just gonna smell like that till the ground dries? I really need to get rid of this smell!
