Diatomaceous Earth and Chicken Parasites

  • The Red Chicken Mite

    If you keep chickens, then you know about keeping a dust box or dust pile available for them.  Chickens coat themselves with fine dust to help rid their bodies of exoparasites (i.e. external parasites: lice, mites, etc.)  The dust creates an inhospitable environment for these pests.

    If you add a handful of diatomaceous earth to the dust box every once in a while, it will make the dust significantly more effective.  (You can read more about diatomaceous earth in my previous post.)

    This is a very easy technique that keeps your chickens more healthy and more happy.

    Happy chickens taking turns in the dust!
