    Hi all,
    I have been looking through the diatomaceous earth threads here on the board and haven't been able to see if there is a minumum age that the chicks need to be before you put the diatomaceous earth in their feed. Ours are 3-4 weeks old now and growing like weeds, but have occasional runny stools. Do they have to be a certain age before you can use the DE in their food?
