    I have heard several times that geese smells worse than horse poop. Do ducks and turkeys smell as bad as geese?

    I have all of those animals (minus my turkey who passed away).. but none of them really smelled.. granted they all free range during the day.. but my birds never stank. With the exception of when they were cooped up when they were babies.. if didnt clean their pen out everyother day it stank horrible.. but that was with ducks or geese.. and that is mostly from them playing in their drinking water.. and mixing everything together.. then it heating up in the sun.. uh!

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks,

    I guess I will wait until next spring to decide to get started with ducks and geese.

    My neighbor raises all of those, plus chickens, all are in a HUGE pen.
    It doesnt smell too bad at all.
    He has waterers so that the ducks and geese cant play in the water. I love driving by there and seeing everyday mixed together.
