This high-quality dust bath for chickens helps keep feathers clean and free of pests! It's packaged in a cute chicken-print 5.5-pound jar, screened for easy sprinkling, and with a screw top lid. The dust is is a non-toxic material, aluminum silicate, that was discovered and mined in the mountains of Southern California. It has been analyzed to be essentially a natural aluminum silicate mineral containing no free silica, no free lime or arsenic. In addition to cleaning the feathers, the dust naturally smothers the respiratory pores of parasites so they cannot breathe, leaving your chickens happy and healthy.
Directions: For free-range setups, just sprinkle some of this powder in your flock's favorite dust-bathing spot. For confined birds, mix several inches of fine dirt with this powder, and leave it in a cardboard or wooden box inside your coop. Your hens will love it!
