I am getting ready to get my chicks and start a flock!!! My hubby and I started our coop frame today! I am soooo excited! We have decided to use the DLM. I have been reading lots of differeny articles and I am up in the air about wether to use diatomacious earth or not. I am hoping for your opinions on this to help me make up my mind. Please let me know why to or why not to use DE. Thanks a bunch!!!
