    There are approximately three zillion threads on here about DE, 'search' or browse and you will find ample reading about it.

    Readers Digest version: yes, many BYCers use DE for various purposes, sometimes to excess.

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat

    I use Stall-Dry along with wood chips on the coop floor to make cleanup easier.
    Stall-Dry is DE and clay.
