    Does Stall Dry's DE food grade DE? I use Stall Dry for my llamas but wondered if I could use it for my chickens in the spring?

    I use Stall Dry in my coops all the time with no problems.

    I use Stall Dry in the chick brooder, I've used it in the coops (and will again)...I even use it in my cat's litter box as well as my rabbits.

    Do your chickens not try to peck at it and eat it? Just wondering b/c I think that's what mine would do.

    Mine don't seem to peck at it. I mix it into the shavings and you really can't even see that it's there.

    Think I could use it on a dirt-bottom run?

    Quote:In the summer when we've had a lot of rain and it's muddy I sprinkle it out in the run to help dry it up so I'd think you could use it on your dirt floor.
