Raising chickens is fun, but cleaning the coop and keeping the smell down can be a hassle. However, it’s a necessary part of the chicken keeper’s job, preventing health problems and decreased production in the flock.
If I had to pick the most unpleasant aspect of being a chicken owner it would be the smell and the flies. But not to worry, because it doesn’t have to be a problem any longer.
