    Has anyone use Fresh Coop Odor Control from TSC?

It's he safe and easy way to manage ammonia odor and moisture levels present in backyard chicken coops.

    I’m going to use my food grade DE , turn into my deep litter, then put fresh bedding on top. Hope it works. I have two roosting boxes. One smells earthy, the second one had strong ammonia smell. I worked on the ventilation, I think it may be working. I’m going to use oats and get the chickens to scratch the bedding.

    Thank you. I found the thread on here, signed in and lost it lol. Someone posted that DE turned in with the deep litter neutralizes the ammonia.

    Start a new thread with your post so you can get some expertise advice. It will get overlooked here.

    DE may absorb some moisture,
    but I don't think it absorbs ammonia like zeolite(PDZ) does.


    Why the change then?
