    Will a rooster roll in poop to stink them self up like a dog? I couldn't figure where the terrible smell was coming from until I picked up Howard my rooster. He smells like chicken diarrhea and stank my jacket up. [​IMG]

  2. You need to check his vent area. I have never known a healthy rooster to smell like manure.
