In an eggshell, Diatomaceous Earth is essentially finely ground and processed fossilized algae. Odd though it may seem, fossilized algae, often referred to as diatoms, contain a highly beneficial chemical compound called silica, which has a whole array of benefits for your poultry’s health; from treating worms to eradicating mites and lice. This happens because the diatoms are essentially very fine, sharp and abrasive particles that eliminate parasites by drying out the natural oils and fats on their exoskeletons, which causes them to shrivel up and perish relatively quickly. Using Diatomaceous Earth is easy – simply mix it in with the chicken feed, sprinkle it around the coop or turn it through wherever they dust bathe – it’s versatile, harmless and oh-so effective.
