Well if you are ONLY feeding your dogs chicken they are not getting a wide enough variety of nutrients. They need red meat, and also organ is important. A wolf would naturally eat deer or other large wild game (red meat) that the pack brings down. A lone wolf might eat rabbits or other small mammals and birds, but chicken is not it's prime source of food in the wild. We feed it as a source of bone and also because it is cost effective, but optimally, if I could find a whole deer for my dog every month that is all he would eat. I mean the whole deer, head and hide and organs and everything. As I can't do that, I feed him a variety of chicken, pork, and beef, with other things when I can get them.
If the organs you were feeding the dogs smelled like pee, they are not fresh. I get my dog liver and kidneys from the butcher that were in the living cow the morning of the day I pick them up and there is never ANY smell to them other than blood. If your dogs are eating poop, they are probably lacking some nutrient they are trying to find in any edible substance.
