    I don't have any place to buy this around where I live so I started looking online for places to buy it mail order. I'm looking for some references of mail order places that you have bought from that you're happy with & which places should I avoid? I'm just worried about buying something labeled as food grade being sold by an unscrupulous dealer that will harm my chickens!

    Thanks, [​IMG]

    I buy mine off e-bay. It is the perma-gaurd food grade DE. Total cost inluding shipping is $55.00 for an 50lb. bag.

    I just had someone from BYC tell me that they get theirs on Ebay and a 50# bag was $55.00. I don't know where you live but our local farmers co-op has some ordered that is supposed to be food grade, which I will make sure of before I purchase it. If you don't have a farmers co-op in your area, have you tried someplace like TSC?[​IMG]
