  •   Reduces smells, fewer flies
  •   Improves the health of the chickens
  •   Improves the quality of the eggs
  •   Increases the quantity of eggs produced
  •   Save with lower production costs

Research has found that this ratio of DE to feed (15:85) will control any worms that are present in the stomach of the birds and will reduce the smell emitted by droppings.*  The absence of any internal parasites as well as the improved overall health and well-being of the birds, can lead to measurable weight increases.

Keeps my chickens healthy

Mix this in with food which keeps my chickens healthy and guinea pigs parasite free. Natural remedy for worming. Plus sprinkle in coops and nesting spots and where they dust bath. Have used on the garden also around the base of plants and trees. Great value buying in bulk. Keeps pests away from food containers too. Can't be without this product.

Great for chickens

12 August 2020
I bought this product for my chickens as they seemed a bit poorly loosing feathers and egg production became sporadic and they haven't looked back. The feathers are back as is the egg production and the eggs even seem to be bigger. Delivery was also very prompt.

Excellent All Around
