hurl! They are SOOO stinky...I'm not sure why!? We are cleaning their brooder out ALL OF THE TIME..thinking that it is just that..but it has to be THEM... My son says; "The military should use these chicks as stink bombs; they'd be cheaper"... what can we do?? I dont know if it is the breeds? (Have no clue they are a mix..I've had some ppl here say what they think they are.. but its all a guess lol)...or what... anyone have ANY ideas? suggestions??? Our last set of chicks which were MORE, did NOT stink at all; until they were about 10 wks old.. then it was terrible until we got them out in their coop/run...we have 16 chicks now and they are terrible..so much so its waking me up at night now...and as soon as I can, they go outside in their brooder to spend the day...then I bring them back in at night..ugh..
