    I called the feed store for poultry dust and the guy said all they have is sevin and he uses it on his flock. So I send my brother to go pick it up and he comes back with 10%. From what I understand it should be 5% correct? I am thinking I should just return it and try to find a feed store that carries poultry dust. We have been in a serious drought and now it's poring rain so dusting them is going to have to wait anyway!

    I use the Poultry dust with Permethrin. I have never used Sevin, so can't answer this one for you.

    There are some threads about it though, you may want to do a search.

    You could return it or cut it 50% with baking soda and use it that way.

    I was wondering about that, like how to cut it in half and what to do it with. So baking soda will work?
