    Tractor Supply has started carrying Red Lakes DE. At my store it was $11.99 for a 20# bag. It was near the wormers and medical supplies.

    This is not the pure white stuff, but it is what I have used for the past 2 years. I have been very happy with it. Now it is more readily available to us at a reasonable price!

    The same brand of food grade DE is available at my local feed store for 14$ for a 40lb bag o_O

    but the TSC price is still better than people paying 50+ dollars for a few lbs of the stuff.

    I can get it at the feed store for $15/40# but it is about 25 miles further away! And you are right, it is way better than the online price!​

    Quote:Diatomaceous Earth. Great stuff for any chicken keeper. Do a search of the forums here and you'll learn all there is to know about it's uses and benefits.
