Description:

Diatomaceous Earth is a poultry-keeper's best friend. It's 100% natural, and is used to help prevent for all manner of poultry ailments including intestinal worms, mites and lice. It's safe and non-toxic. Diatomaceous earth is a fine white powder made of the tiny fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of algae. Ours is food-grade, so it's safe for your pet chickens and safe for you to eat their eggs. Recommendations are to add 1 pound of DE to every 50 pounds of feed to help prevent worms. To help prevent mites or lice, sprinkle some in the nest boxes, coop bedding, and especially in your chickens' dust bathing area. To treat a current infestation in your flock, apply it directly to your birds, especially beneath their wings and around their vents. (You can even use it in your house to treat ant infestations!)

Note: Please select Ground Shipping when you check out. Orders take 4-5 business days to arrive.
