I went to the feed store this weekend looking for diatomaceous earth to use in the chicken bedding. The boy who helped me had never heard of it (like so many feed stores I've been to!) but the older gentleman in the back was familiar with it. I explained to him I needed something for chickens and he sold me "Natural Guard Crawling Insect Control with Diatomaceous earth." I got it home and it says nothing about being able to use it in poultry bedding - then again it doesn't say I can't use it with pets or around humans either just those generic warnings "if swallowed/inhaled etc." I read somewhere on the forums to pick up "food grade" diatomaceous earth but this is the only thing I have been able to find. So what do you all think? Can I use it in their pine bedding and at what age can I start putting it out? Also do I need to dust them w/ it as well? If I can't use this does anyone know where I could find some in NE GA (Gainesville/Commerce/Cornelia/Toccoa preferably). Thanks so much!
