    we bought some blue cloud dust at petsmart a few months ago. my father was going to use it for concrete work but he never did. im wondering if we could use this for my flock's dust baths.

    You bought it at Petsmart for concrete work? That doesn't make sense.

    What's it made of?

    What was its intended use? was it meant to use in the bottom of a terrarium for some type of snake or reptile?

    if so, it's probably okay for chickens. Remember, they eat most everything.

    Then I'd say its fine for your chickens.
