To me it smells funny, a bit like baby poo but my dh thinks it's ok.

Would you use it?, i don't often buy a whole chicken so not sure how it should smellgrin

it shouldn't smell

if it smells bad it's off - off chicken has a definite strong smell - if yo're not sure cook it and see

yes, use it!

Cook it

You'll soon know if it is off. Just use your common sense, there is no way your body will let you eat rotten chicken.

Give it a quick wash and smell it again.

assuming you've followed the correct storage instructions (chilled), then i'd use it. If you've left it on the windowsill for the last few days I wouldn't grin

It's been kept chilled, it's in the oven now.

Off chicken stinks to high heaven.

Sometimes I find meat wrapped from the supermarket can have an odd smell when first opened, which dissipates quickly. No idea why.
