Thats bizarre.

Last time I was on Amoxicillin my urine smelled exactly like antibiotics.

I know that Asparagus makes your pee more yellow and stinky.

Are you drinking enough water?

I'd also second the water thing. Maybe the 'chicken' smell is actually due to dehydration. Less-diluted pee is definately stinkier and darker in color.

My urine smells somewhat chickenish too, when its thick and yellow and I am not drinking enough water. Make sure you're getting those 8 cups!

Mine smells when I don't drink a lot of water. Or if I have to hold it for a long time. Certain medications can make it smell funny, too. Taking vitamins (esp b vitamins) can give it a darker yellow color even if you're drinking a lot of water.



If it always smells funny for no apparent reason and doesn't stop, you might want to get it checked out by a doctor. An off-smell can be a sign of a yeast infection, urinary tract infection, or an STD.

Drink lots of water, eat lots of nutritional yeast and you will have neon pee.

Does your urine smell always like chicken? Do you eat some foods excessively? Or food that contain artificial flavours? Asparagus also makes the urine smell funny.

If I'm not answering quickly enough - leave a note on Twitter for @Rheumatologe

I just went for the urine yet and result is pending. It smells like chicken or pork meat that had been cooked and left to cool for a some time. Then you year open the the meat with the fork that is the exact Smell that I got from my Urine. It is different and abnormal. What is wrong.

Maybe you can put it into cans and sell it to paleo people as "organic free range chicken broth", produced from "happily killed chickens".

Are you taking B vitamins, different medications, or eating asparagus?

Or maybe a UTI if you have other symptoms.

Alcohol can make your urine smell really weird too I think.

My mom likes those store bought chickens covered in grease, and I think those smell like urine.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.

That's probably the ammonia scent. You should drink lots of water, literally 12 glasses with intervals. Also check if there's burning sensation when you urinate cause that can be a symptom considering it's an abnormal odor.
