    Maybe try spraying it down with Orange Guard? Its an all natural bug killer that smells like oranges. You find it at health food stores, and most Ace Hardware store have started to carry it.

    Ummm...another thought is adding a few drops of peppermint oil to some water and spray the coop down with that.

    Just some ideas.

    raking it out whenever it gets smelly works pretty good too. Don't know how many chickens you have, but the more poop, the more smell.
