    Hi. We have two week old chicks and 2 hens. We ordered DE to dust the coop and run and we were wondering if we could put it in their feeders. We live in Florida and it's really humid and we were hoping it might help keep their food dry. We know it won't hurt the hens but what about the chicks?? Anybody know??? Thanks.
