    Hi, everyone

    I was wondering if Garden Lime is dangerous for chickens? I heard that it is real useful for controlling odors and drying out the "waste" that poultry produces...but am not sure if its okay to use around chickens.

    Also can i just sprinkle it on top of the feces and leave it there? And someone said not to put lime EVERY DAY....?

    Any tips or advice would be appreciated!

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    It's very very very very very very dusty. (Can't empasize this enough.)

    You can use it if you're in a well ventilated area- it will get everywhere if you're not careful, so don't go overboard (and try not to use with the chickens around.)

    It is very drying.
