    Manage the smell of chickens on a Rainy Day? My mother told me that my grandparents used Sulpher! What?!? That can't be right is it? How do you All manage the smell besides just keeping the area clean? Thanks!
  2. Diatomaceous Earth...food grade. I get it at my local feed store. It takes all the smell away. Sprinkle it in your bedding. It will also kill lice on the chickens. You can dust the chickens with it.

    I have to order it, as no stores sell it here. But I am doubling my order. One for the chickens and one for the horse.

    Give them so much room that their droppings have no impact from accumulation.
