    Had no idea what "easichick" is, thank goodness for the internet :) From what I read you could, my only concern would be that the "particles" are smaller & young chicks would be more likely to "eat" it. Others will be peeping their opinions soon.

    Hey, Phil! It looks like a lovely product. It also looks like it is quite costly! Wanna put your general location in your profile? Certainly not necessary, but it helps folks to give you sensible information, and also helps make it easier to make connections with people in your area. Related to the easichick: If you have access to yard debris: leaves, grass clippings, garden weeds, and what ever else you can get your hands on, you can add that to your deep litter. The EC you are planning to use will be very high in carbon, so you'll want to temper it down a bit by adding more green matter to it to promote composting.
