5kg Poultry Grade Diatomaceous Earth (2-4mm)
Our poultry grade Diatomaceous Earth is perfect for controling lice and parasites interanally and externally. DE's porous structure creates the ideal absorbent material to be spread in coops, on perches and in and around nesting boxes.
When DE is included in feed rations it can improve feathering and increase egg production by removing internal worms and parasites. DE provides a food rich in minerals followed-on by increased chickens weight gain and egg production.
