I read the bag and it says dont breath it dont do this and that.
I wanted to put it out in a pan for my chickens to dust in
Will that be ok will it cause problems if they breath it? I am pretty confused since I know food grade is used in deworming and in feed, I also know that it is good to eliminate flies and lice ect
I wondered about spreading it in the horse manure pile to eliminate bugs and maybe in the horse pasture in the manure areas. Any thoughts ???
The other thing is I purchased at the feed store and I asked for Food Grade she said it was but I dont find anything on the bag that says food Grade. Any thoughts.

Thank You
that is what I though.
She tried to tell me it was and she has a BS in Agriclulture she should know the difference.

When I get the right stuff can I use it in a tub for them to dust in or should I just spread it in the pen
I do not have any fly or lice problem that I know but I want to be preventative. I have horses in the barn next to the coop and I dont want anyone gettin bugs:D
