what is Sweet PDZ? is it safe to use in coops?
Sweet PDZ is a horse stall refresher that, in gravel form, resembles cat litter but it smells better. It's 100% safe for use with chickens (I use it!). I have a poop shelf under my roosts in the coop and it's filled with Sweet PDZ. I scoop it every few days with a cat litter scoop and it keeps allllll that crazy night poop out of the coop and off the floor. It's a very clean way of doing things and I have yet to replace or add to my shavings in the coop in 21 weeks of them living there. PM me if you want more info or have questions.
Where do you purchase it? How often do you change it? How much is it a package?
I just bought a 50lb bag at the local feed store in the horse section. I don't ever change it, just scoop it. I might need to add more in a year or so, but I started off with 2 bags of it on the shelf and it still looks the same! Don't remember what I paid but it's worth it, there's NO stink and NO poop in my coop!
I paid mine between $13 and $15 (depending of the feed store) but i live in So Cal so the price might be different where you live. I love that stuff!!! I mix it with a little of DE and add it under the roosts (in the pooping board). Everyday, I just have to spend 10 minutes to scoop, it's so easy and the coop doesn't smell at all!
thanks for all your help. what is de?
Here is a nice informative description:
Do you buy the granular or powder form???
I buy granular; the powder resembles DE which is too fine IMO for chickens; they breathe it in
For everyone not using a poop board with sweet PDZ, you should really try it. You will be amazed about the amount of waste you save and the coop will smell nice a fresh. I also use the granular form with a little play sand mixed in, works great.
