    DE is good for insect control, not really worms. It kills bugs by scratching their hard exoskeletons causing them to dehydrate. It won't work when wet either, so don't think it has any effect on soft internal parasites. I put in nest boxes under the bedding as a mite deterrent and sprinkle it around anywhere I don't want ants. Won't hurt them to eat it. It's added to grain in storage to keep the bugs out, so I guess we all eat it too.

    you have to toss the eggs for a while after the worming. you will notice bigger eggs and less food consumption as well.

    Eggs that are gathered after worming really need to be thrown away, not fed to animals. There is wormer residue in those eggs.

    Merrie Englande, wow that must be old. Looks very old spelling.

    My birds are all tucked up in bed, I've got my Mothers here while she is away in Turkey. That cockerel I gave her from Easter hatch is evil, it hates me with a vengeance. Stan the man may not be here when she gets back!! If it were mine it would have had the bullet by now. I dont want to upset her any more though as just before she went away the little brown pullet I gave her got out and her dog killed it. Then the dog took it in the house, shook it in the kitchen splattering blood all over the new units and feathers everywhere. She was in right state by the time I got round there.

    Has Frosty just started doing the carpet eating? My little Kipler goes through stages of chewing things but then doesn't do it for month.
