    Is it a Wormer or a "Natural CONTROL of internal parasites" (like Verm X)? The to are different. The other question would be is it chicken safe.

    I just bought a 50lb bag of DE for $40 locally. If you get the food grade kind of DE, then it is safe for animals and even humans to consume.

    You can check it out at www.theholistichorse.com. I can buy in bulk at a savings and pass that savings on to others. They sell all kinds of natural products. This one is called WormGuard Plus Broad Spectrum for Poultry. I have used it for a while now and have noticed a big difference in my flocks appearence and vitality. I am completely satisfied.

    it is safe for animals and even humans to consume.

    It may be "safe" but it's not beneficial in any way.
    DE has never been scientifically proven to be anything other than a mechanical insectide, and a moisture absorbant​

    That place is high on there prices. They want $13.78 for a pound of Acidified Copper Sulfate you can get it a Jeffers has it for $4.45 a pound..

    Not to sound dumb but you want $25.00 for a 2lb bag but if you go to the link that you posted they want $17.78 for a 2lb bag....

    It's $8.99 for shipping. Price per bag plus shipping is $26.77. They do charge shipping. It doesn't just magically appear at you door. [​IMG]

    It's been awhile since I purchased DE, but it was $25 for a 50 lb bag at the local feed store. I saw some this past week at Home Depot in the "Organic Pest Control" section probably a 2 or 5 lb bag; I don't recall the price, but it sure wasnt anywhere near $25.
