Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has used the DE from Red Lake Earth. They claim it is food grade on their website, but looking online, I don't see it written on the outside of the bag. Is it safe for chicks? They're just under 3 weeks old and we'd like to set up some sort of dust bath for them?

You're going to get different opinions on DE but a lot of keepers don't use it as it is a respiratory irritant. Some plain dirt from your yard, sand, plain peat moss, are all fine choices for a dust bath.
