    I have recently added 6 chickens to my gang and I have noticed that the coop area is soo much more stinky. Before, my silkie and EE never smelled as bad. I figured it was poop when one of the new ones pooped on me and as i was cleaning it I took a whift and whooooo STANK! Is it something in their previous diet?

    How do I get rid of it out of them and the coop?

    It is possible that they are adjusting to a new diet, new soil and conditions that may be affecting their digestion. Give it time and hopefully the poop will stop stinking. Keep the coop as clean as possible so they are not breathing bad air at night and keep it dry.
