Glad to hear he's eating more! Baby poop can have weird smells and softer textures sometimes. What's the protein source in his food (chicken, fish, duck, etc.)? Food with fish as the main protein can make their poop smellier.

Is his stool just soft, or loose like he has diarrhea, and is he drinking enough water? Keep an eye on that because if he gets diarrhea he could get dehydrated very quickly and should see a vet if it lasts more than 24 hours.
