    Can you use the DLM and Stall Dry and still put the litter on your mulch pile when you go to clean out? Just curious.

    Quote:it's DE and Lime mixed together. gets rid of the ammonia and helps keep the shavings dry. used more for equine purposes, but works awesome in the coop.

    don't inhale it and don't get in on an open wound. don't get it in the food area.

    follow directions on the bag.

    My chickens run and start pecking at it as soon as I toss any around. I've seen no ill effects from them eating it.

    my bad...sorry for the confusion. i am pretty sure my bag does say to keep out of the food area. i will check it in the a.m.

    it does work wonders. great in the duck coops as well.
