So my chickens one day stopped laying and I didn't know why. I did my research and found they have mites and worms. Then I discovered DE, this was 2 weeks ago. I still don't know if will work, but I'm hopeful that they will start to lay again when it gets warmer. I got rid of all of the mice, birds, noises, and the kids to stay away from them. So, they are basically stress free. I have gotten a chicken step feeder and a new waterier, so nothing can get in except water in the feeder. I need to close the openings, but its small enough nothing can get in but bugs(which the chickens will eat) and water. I'm sure this works and if it doesn't work I'll tell you guys. Maybe I got the wrong kind of Diatomaceous Earth.
