    There are two dusters for sale on the Earthworks Health website, where I am looking at ordering some DE from.

    Dustin-Mizer Powder Duster
    for $34.00

    Pest Pistol Powder Duster
    for $8.99

    http://www.earthworkshealth.com/detail.php?id=9

    The first one looks like a good duster for broad applications like in my gardens and yard, but the second one is cheaper and would probably work well for right around my coop. Anyone have/use either of these? Feedback? Do you like it, does it clog a lot, worth the $$ to get the more expensive one? THANKS IN ADVANCE! [​IMG]

    Honestly, I just use their feed scooper-thingy. Since it's okay if they ingest DE, why spend extra money on anything besides treats.

    I agree with australorpchick. Save your money and use something to 'sprinkle' it where you want it to go. You really don't want poultry dust or DE air born. I think the dusters are for more of a garden application anyway.
