COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - We got several calls into our newsroom about a strange stench around the Columbia metro area. Twitter was abuzz with complaints about the smell. 
The Department of Health and Environmental Control said it smells like chicken manure, and that's what a city official confirmed Tuesday night. 
Chicken manure was in fact laid down at a farm near Rosewood Drive. The official said that's what's likely causing the smell.
