    Is it good for stink? And is it safe for chickens? I went to the corner store expecting to get powdered lime because that is all I ever got there before. He comes out with pelletted and thats all hes got. Seeing how I already paid for it I took it home. Now I am wondering if it is good for anything and if it may harm my chickens. Thanks

    Quote:As long as it isn't Hydrated lime, it ought to be ok. They will probably pick at a piece and spit it out - I doubt they'd eat much of it.

    It is supposed to take the stink out within 24 hours (unless it is REALLY super wet and icky) but the pelleted might take a little longer to break down - the powdered kind would most likely work faster.

    I have a couple of bags, myself, to put into the duck coops when I clean them out. Believe me, it needs it!!!
