    Hi All,

    I went to the co-op today and got some DE. It is in a brown bag and says on the bag
    "FOOD CHEMICAL CODEX GRADE DE."

    Is this the right kind of DE.

    It has kind of a buff color. I just want to make sure before I put it in
    the coop.

    Thanks.

    Each manufacturer's label is different. If it says Food Grade then you are safe. Mine says Food Grade & Pet Friendly.

    Okay, thanks everybody. I will put it in the girls coop tomorrow.

    I had to make sure before I put in anywhere near the ladies.

    Glad to know I got the right kind. [​IMG]
