Yep, corns are quite stinky, but I've found fresh boa 'logs' can be very stinky as well.

Nothing much you can do except remove the poo as and when the corn makes a deposit

try feeding a medium mouse every 7 days, if he's extra stinky it could be bits of undigested mouse in his poo.

If you're worried about this not being enough, my adults only get a medium every 7-14 days
