***I don’t think chickens fart***

But their manure releases HUGE AMOUNTS of AMMONIA.

Stench, from worst to least...from my memory...

Hog. Absolute worst stench.
Chicken. Even worse when it is sour.
Cow
Horse
people.

After a while you can tell by the smell what is being spread on the fields, even ten miles away.

Farm boy here. At one time or another, we raised chickens, cattle, a few hogs, one cow-horse.

The chickens we raised thousands at a time. Put down bagasse on the floor (sugar cane stalk residue). Soaked it all up and stayed nicely dry. Let it compost for a year, shovel it out.....WONDERFUL for the garden.
