As long as they have enough room there is no odor, when you smell "farm" that is an indication of overcrowding and is bad for everything involved. I realize that in commercial chicken farms it isn't possible to give each bird 5 square feet of space but I've seen some places that are nut to butt chickens and you won't eat store-bought chicken anymore if you ever see it.
Yeah, I had a white leghorn rooster when I was young. He never smelled nor his pen. Got a peep from the 5&10 like millions of other kids at easter before they required the sale of lots of six chicks. My mom never let me maul it like the rest of the kids. Started buying 10c bags of cracked corn at the dime store and soon my father was buying fifty pound bags at the Agway. One day after school I was told that "chicken little" died. Later, when I became an adult, mom confessed the farmer down the road had Chicken Little for some Sunday dinner.
anyway, is the chicken poop burning idea valid?
