I am one of those people who take the dust out of the bottom of the feeder and mix it with water for my chickens. The only problem is, that dust usually has a ton of chick dander in it. They are already living in the coop and free-range(kind of) in my yard in the day, but I put the feeder up by the perch because they will spilling it a lot and it's easier to clean up when it's on newspaper. Anyways, so the dust has a lot ot chick dander in it. I'm assuming it won't hurt them to eat their dead skin cells, but is there a better way to get rid of this problem? Blowing the feed didn't do much; the dander stayed and the dust got blown away.
