    I have never heard "porky smell. I would say "the smell of pork". The same goes for chicken.

    I am not a teacher.

    You could always say, "That chicken smells fowl".

    I don't have a problem with "That has a slightly porky smell" to mean "It smells a bit like pork".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
