Hi All! Hope you had a wonderful day; we had some pretty serious storms roll through here. Power was out for about an hour; was beginning to think maybe I needed to break out the generator and they came back on. Was a little worried about our chicky babies and their warmth. The storm cooled things down dramatically. But they are chirping, pecking and all over the place in their brooder; so they are good... I do have another question When would it be okay to introduce diatomaceous earth into their diet and dust them a little with it to prevent lice or mites.... Is that something to do after they are in their coop outside? Thanks in advance for your input.
