    The recomendation on the 50 pound bag states 2% ratio. We use about 1 tablespoon per gallon jug of feed. We have found that if we use more, it goes to waste and makes a lot of dust. Hope that helps!

    The manufacturer recommends mixing in a ratio of 10% DE to feed for chickens. Be sure it is FOOD grade DE bought at a feed store. This is info I found online but I agree it does seen like it makes some waste and dust! I just sprinkle a little on top of the feed in the bag, mix it in and feed [​IMG]
