Q & A / Myth: Chicken coops are smelly

As with domestic dogs and cats, a poorly maintained habitate has the potential to become odorous. In general, a hen is not inherently unsanitary or “smelly.” Often when someone refers to how poorly chickens smell, they are referencing the oder from an industrial farm where a build up of ammonia occurs. A properly built coop with ventilation and adequate space, in addition to routine cleaning, would eliminate the potential of foul odor.
