    I've found something called "Dry Stall" here: http://www.drystall.com/dry_stall.html but I don't think that's what everyone is talking about on this forum.

    I've also found this:

    and this:

    http://outdoors.pricegrabber.com/garden-lawn-treatments/LTD-Stall-Dry-Deodorizer-40/m52660607.html

    but I can't tell if these are the products with DE and/or if they are the ones that I've seen people talk about on these boards. [​IMG]

    The one above is the one I'm familiar with. We use it for the hens and horse. If you look closely it has chickens, horses and other animals on the bag. We spread it down after cleaning to absorb odors and wetness. Works extremely well! We purchase ours at Southern States. My opinion is the Stall Dry is not as powdery as DE, which I like.

    If you've got a TSC in your area, call them to see if they have Stall Dry. If you don't have a TSC (Tractor Supply) then call your other farm stores to see if they have it. One of them should have it or PDZ which is similar.

    I find the first listed Dry Stall at our local feed store. It works great at absorbing wet spots in winter... I use it only on spots needed for the horses and cover it so they wont ingest it by accident.
    My question on using it in the hen house is wont the chickens eat it? Or should I ask can they eat it with no ill effects?
