mite, lice powder in dustbathing box?

beeliz(2)April 23, 2009

I heard of a safer way to powder my hens in dust powder...due to my pregnancy,i can't handle the powder,,so i mixed it in their sandbox inside their coop for dustbathing. i'll do that for 2 days and powder their roosts and nests. i'll take away the mixed sandbathing box after 2 days then redo it in about 2 weeks. sound good??

Sounds good to me. I mix DE in the sanding box and outdoor sanding corner.
