Thanks for your query. How frequent is the bowel movement? Hope he is not constipated. You need not worry about the colour and the smell but ensure that he is not constipated.

Increasing roughage and liquids in the dier should reduce constipation, if any, and may help in the foul smell.

With best wishes.
