Thanks. That should spread the Roo's attentions a little as you suggested.

It sure will, your original birds won't be hounded by him now big_smile.png

Just think with having a roo, incubating and hatching could be on the cards in the future wink.png

Be great if the girls would do it all naturally. But I don't think these are the right breeds.

Hello there and welcome to BYC! :frow

 

Yes, you can as long as it is Food Grade DE. When taken internally it actually helps with egg laying and contains other minerals. It is debated as to whether it kills internal bugs since it clumps when it is wet, however it works quite well externally to cut the exoskeltal system of bugs. I put DE in an old baby powder container and shake it on. It clumps a bit, but it works well enough. :-)

 

Enjoy!
