we bought chickens there now about 8 weeks old, they are in my utility room, they have hay, sheddings water food heat everything that is needed. i CLEAN them everyday though u wouldnt know it and sanitize my hands after they are handled and cleaned. my question is they have a stink about them that is now maken me sick when i have to pass them to go upstairs i now dread i actully almost threw up earlyer. no matter were i go in the house i can smell the chickens. so i wasent sure if there was something that could actully be maken me sick, i can not wait for them to be able to be outside and de funk my house. so if anyone has any info i would love to hear it. again i clean them everyday but i cant take it anymore. right now raising my own chickens isent worth it, i would rather just buy eggs. lol.
Chickens aren't very clean animals, even when you clean up after them a lot. Their poop stinks to high heaven, and it's not like you can house break the or anything where they only go at certain times / only go outside. So unless you are literally in there cleaning up after them every time they go, then your house is going to have that smell. However, here's some good news - according to this site, your chickens should be more than old enough to be kept outside :-)
