Why Diatomaceous Earth for Poultry?

DE is USDA approved as an anti-caking agent for animal feed. It is FDA approved for internal and external use and has a rating of Food Chemical Codex Grade.

This remarkable substance is a natural desiccant. By drying up manure faster, it controls odors as well as keeping coops cleaner and drier.

DE contains 15 trace minerals including calcium, potassium, copper, zinc, phosphorous, silica, and selenium. Mixing Diatomaceous Earth with feed increases egg production and shell hardness.

Deodorization and absorption are natural functions of Diatomaceous Earth. The benefits will continue as undigested DE passes through and settles on cage or coop floors.

Our Diatomaceous Earth is OMRI (Organic Material Review Institute) listed Food Chemical Codex Grade. It is non-treated, freshwater Diatomaceous Earth that is mined, sifted, and bagged in the USA.


  • Sprinkle the coop or cage floor with shavings. Sprinkle in nesting boxes between layers of hay and mix a small amount into dusting bins.
  • Add one pound or 6 cups to every 50 pounds of feed.
  • Use as a white wash for roosts and walls. Mix one cup of DE to 1/2 gallon of water. Stir frequently.

Ingredients: 100% Diatomaceous Earth (Amorphous non-crystaline silica).
