Does anyone know how long Diatomaceous Earth takes to get rid of worms? I got mine last weekend & started it in the pellet on Sunday i think. Worms is my last guess as to why they aren't gaining weight. I have them on Calf Mana also. I treated for Cocci & haven't seen signs of it in quite a while now, but someone also told me that it stays in the ground forever, is this true? I would hate to have to keep dealing with this. Also she said that chickens that have suffered from Cocci are never what they were before it, they won't regain all the weight and always be bony & their chest bones will stick out always. I HATE the idea of this & i hope it's not true. Would it hurt to put them on Sulmet again, along with the DE? We just lost an older SLW pullet today & I'm worried it might be back & I'm just not seeing it. Some of their butts are pretty pasty looking. Is it okay to add DE to their treats while I am still giving it to them in their pellet? Will it work faster/better on the worms? Does the excess just get 'expelled'? It's a lot of questions but I'm really worried about them. We lost a lot this year already, it hasn't been so bad lately but the pullet today worries me. Thanks everyone.
