  • Ants Ants Ants.. Everywhere I Look There Are Ants
    I have never seen so many ants before. Do you have more ants at your house this year too? We had another very COLD winter, just like we did last year but we didn’t have all these ants last spring like we do this year. They are everywhere. Not only am I seeing lots of […]

postheadericon Studies Done About Diatomaceous Earth by Red Lake Earth

I love chickens. They are such fun to have around. I have been reading a lot about adding diatomaceous earth (DE) to their feed and also letting them enjoy it as a dust bath will make for much “Happier Chickens.”

Happy Chickens means better looking chickens, more eggs production, just all around healthier/Happy Chickens.  Red Lake Earth did several studies about the benefits of adding DE to chicken feed. The results of the study was very interesting, in fact after reading the studies I would hope that everyone who raises any number of chickens from 1 to a zillion should be adding this wonderful, all natural product that is indeed good for every one and every thing.

The first study I would like to post was done by….

RED LAKE EARTH ……Effect on Bone Mineralization

Previously we showed that free-range hens fed diets supplemented with diatomaceous earth (DE) were significantly heavier, laid more eggs, and consumed more feed than hens fed the control diet, with no differences in feed efficiency. In the present study….. you can read the entire study here.

Red Lake Earth did another study called Effect of Dietary Diatomaceous Earth and a Single Topical Application of llarn Fresh on House Fly, Musca domestica L., Breeding, Egg Quality and Selected Manure Nutrients. Now that is quite the title for a subject but the jest of the whole thing is…… Using DE on the chickens and around the their living quarters cuts down on flies…. amongst other interesting findings. Your able to read the entire study here.

I found both of these studies very interesting and they contain documented proof that using diatomaceous earth is indeed very beneficial.
