RaChelle from Jacksonville, Florida uses Diatomaceous Earth with her chickens. Below are her suggested uses and the results she has experienced.

 

I like your product, I use [Red Lake Earth] DE in my chicken feed every few months.

 

Fresh Coop Odor Control:

 

I put it [diatomaceous earth] in a coffee can with holes in the top to dust the area around the coop and inside the run before I put hay down. I use it inside the coop under bedding to absorb moisture, control odor, and make a nice base so that cleaning the inside is easier.

 

When I'm cleaning the inside of the coop I sprinkle some everywhere, then take a wire brush with a metal scraper on the edge (used for cleaning barbecue grills) and scrape waste easily [away] and the surface is free of poop and debris and ready to be cleaned and/or hosed down without scrubbing or any effort.

 

Fresh Coop Dust Bath:

 

Finally, I mix a bath for my birds using ashes (I burn hay), dirt, and DE.

 

Needless to say the 50 lbs bag is my best friend.
