    So I was not the brightest and put my teenager's food in the run behind a fence to keep the big girls out - well it got wet (the nonstop rain) and knocked all over the pen.

    Now the area stinks like death because it won't stop raining.

    My run is sand over gravel and I have shoveled out the sand in the area and fenced the chickens out of it. I was wondering if I could put down lime to help with the smell.

    Is this the correct lime? Rural King Lime

    My Rural King is an hour away but I wasn't sure about this one from Tractor Supply - Tractor Supply Lime

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Help my girls smell good again!

    Either would work fine.
