    My pullet and 2 month old chicks are currently living in the storage room of my barn while we completely revmap the coop to keep the be-darn foxes out.

    I does get good sunlight on the poo, about 3'' of pine shavings, I've laid down DE, and it has a large, strongly wired window which is always open.

    And yet, it still stinks.

    I'm hoping to move them out within the next two weeks, but until them, I need to fix the smell. I thought I read about a product that dries out the poop, but I cannot find it on the the site anywhere. Can anyone help? And does it work on all poop (goats) or just chicky-poo.

    I thank you, and my oh so understanding DH thanks you.

    search of the threads on DE (Diatomaceous Earth).

    You will find more information and more controversy that you imagined.
