    Hi,
    I am interested if you buy your DE online or locally. I don't think I can find it locally, but then, I haven't really looked all too hard. If you do buy online, who do you buy from?

    thanks

    I got a 5 lb bag about 3 months ago and have 2/3 of it left still. A little goes a LOOONG way.

    But my coop is also small (4x4).

    YW. I got a little bag to see if I would like it. I do. Keeps the coop drier and cuts down on smell and flies.

    I picked mine up at my local feed store where I buy feed. I usually buy a 5# bag and lasts about 2 months. Alittle goes along way. I paid 6.75 Helps dry poop out, with the smell and keeps flys away. Not to mention dusting my girls with it.

    our local feed store didnt' carry it but they were willing to special order it for me. $10 for a 5lb bag. and, when i say feed store, i mean out in the country farmer's feed store, not TSC. they don't have it , and so far haven't been able to special order it

    I get mine at the feed mill where I get my feed. It is $15 for a 40# bag. A local nursery that carries feed has the same stuff for $25.
