    Is stall dry (or dri how ever it's spelled) safe to use in the chicken coop or run? What if they eat it?


    Thanks.

    I personally love stall-dri, it keeps the bugs away and I have no smell at all, it's great for absorbing and no amonia smell...Love stall-dri:love

    I called the company that manufactures it and asked them if it was non-toxic. They said yes. To make sure, I asked them this:
    If my kid swallowed some of this, does he need to go to the ER?

    They laughed and said no, there's nothing in it that would hurt him. It's just clay and DE, and some sort of natural scent stuff. I've been using it on my chickens and they're fine.

    Quote:Yes it does. I had a horrible problem with flies and maggots in my cornish X coop, and once I got some of the stall-dri the litter stayed dry and fly-free until I butchered yesterday.

    I use it all the time in the coop and run. It's wonderful in litterboxes too and if your cats or dogs have an accident on the floor, pour some on and clean it up in a few hours. I can't believe I lived without this stuff for so long!

    Just make sure you get the Stall Dry that is nontoxic. Apparently, and I didn't know this till I bought it the last time, there are two types of Stall Dry.
