Been doing some reading about diatomacious earth and using it in chickens dust baths, scattering it around the coop, and adding food grade to their feed.
Seems to work wonders as the chickens grow faster and healthier because they don't have to fight off any parasites.

I also read that it was good for almost all farm animals to have some in their feed - though it has to be food grade as the regular grade is too coarse and could be harmful.
-Food grade is also too fine to work well as outside insect control.

Does anyone know where I could get the regular diatomacious earth and the food grade?

Hiya Dropkick:

Try here for the feed grade: http://www.mcmurrayhatch.../diatomaceous_earth.html
The other stuff shouldn''t be difficult. Just Google it.
