Are all zeolites/clinoptilolites created equal?

I use Sweet PDZ in my coop and pigeon loft. Have had no issues with use. Reasonably priced as well.
Copy and paste here;


What is Sweet PDZ?

Zeolites were formed from volcanic activity millions of years ago, and it should be stressed, that all zeolites have unique characteristics and abilities. The clinoptilolite (Clino) that comprises Sweet PDZ is one of the very best at ammonia absorption and odor neutralization.

I’d like to get some zeolite that is safe for my flock for the coop. Are they all the sane? The brands catering to chicken keepers is overpriced. Does it have to be a special grade or can I get the cheapest stuff I find?
Not sure of any differences, not like with DE.
Chicken packaging is just that...overpriced for target market.

One thing to consider, is to get the granules rather than the powder as the granules are dusty enough.
I buy 40# bags of PDZ granules as they are available at my local mill.

Absolutely.
My Tractor Supply has the same bag that cavemanrich posted above and it’s $10 for 40 lbs.
Really, 40# for $10 at TSC?

TSC here has PDZ 25# bag for $10 in horse aisle,
or Manna Pro 1.75# jar for $6 in chicken aisle....
....but doesn't carry the PDZ 40# bags.

My local mill has PDZ 40# bags for $15.
