Most feeds stores will either carry it or order it for you. You can also go on-line and order it.
Not sure where you live but you can email then and they will let you know where a dealer is in your area. Plus someone on here might know a place that sells it near you if you post your location.
1. Make sure you ONLY get food grade. Pool and/or horticultural are NOT safe for chickens, no matter what you're told by a store employee.
2. You can get DE online. there are lots of sellers. I bought mine for around $27, shipped (10 lbs).
3. BYC user spatcher sells DE - send him a PM for info.
What is DE?
Follow the above links to find out what DE is and about its uses.
Quote:Diatomaceous earth I usually check ebay for it make sure it's labeled "for human consuption "
One addition: some sellers on ebay will say that they're selling DE that's really food grade, just not labeled as such because it's difficult to get the labeling approved. I wouldn't trust them. Only get DE that's labeled "food grade".
