    Or do you just let them dust bathe themselves? My 3 pullets have been scratching their necks; 2 of them have bald patches there. I keep looking for any sign of bugs and haven't seen any, but I thought maybe I could dust them with DE since I have it.

    If they dust bathe regularly then just add the DE to their normal dusting pit. They will take care of the rest. [​IMG]
