    How do the rest of you use DE? Add it to the food? Mixed in water? Free choice, like grit? I'm seeing so much about using it and some of it is contradictory. I have 60-70 chickens of varying age 1 month to 3 years. They free range and I throw out food morning and evening. I also saw mention of sprinkling it in areas they take dust baths.
