Diatomaceous Earth (pronounced: di-a-tom-aye-shus) is a eggstraordinary poultry product that many chicken lovers are buying by the truckload! In an eggshell, food grade Diatomaceous Earth is finely ground and processed fossilized algae, otherwise known as diatoms, which essentially helps eradicate nasty parasites like mites, lice and worms from your flock’s plumage or digestive system. To use Diatomaceous Earth simply dust it around the inside of the coop, perches and nesting boxes or mix it through your flock’s chicken feed to reap the eggcellent benefits. You will soon find the Diatomaceous Earth helps prevents mites, lice and worms, neutralises “fowl” odours, repels ants from the coop, as well as boosting the overall health and well being of your flock. Also, Diatomaceous Earth can be used to help protect other pets like cats, rabbits and guinea pigs from any nasty creepy crawlies that might be lurking in your backyard. Find out what everyone is clucking about and give our 4kg bag of Diatomaceous Earth a try today.
