Naturally Sweeter Coops & Healthier Chickens with Sweet PDZ

Chicken keepers are just discovering what horse owners have know for 25 years: Sweet PDZ controls odor and moisture in animals’ living quarters. I introduced many of you to Sweet PDZ for the first time a few months ago as a component of the innovative new chicken coop bedding, Koop Clean by Lucerne Farms. When Sweet PDZ President Tom Menner, learned from the folks at Lucerne Farms how enthusiastically you received Koop Clean and the functions that Sweet PDZ lend to it, he contacted me to discuss how Sweet PDZ can benefit chickens in any type of litter as an all-natural, holistic and organic solution to chicken waste management and odor problems. Please help me welcome my newest sponsor Sweet PDZ!

Sweet PDZ (zeolite) is a naturally-occurring mineral created from volcanic activity, which captures, neutralizes and eliminates harmful ammonia and odors. Sweet PDZ is sold in ginormous bags for large animals such as horses, but is also packaged in smaller, 3.5 pound packages labeled as Healthy World Pet Deodorizer, which can be used for any animal, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, rabbits, etc.
WHAT IS SWEET PDZ?
Sweet PDZ (zeolite) is a naturally-occurring mineral created from volcanic activity, which captures, neutralizes and eliminates harmful ammonia and odors while absorbing more than half its weight in moisture! Sweet PDZ is sold in ginormous bags for large animals such as horses, but is also packaged in smaller, 3.5 pound packages labeled as Healthy World Pet Deodorizer, which can be used for any animal, chickens, ducks, cats, dogs, rabbits, etc.

WHAT SWEET PDZ DOES & WHAT I LIKE ABOUT IT
ODOR ELIMINATOR
Sweet PDZ binds ammonia gas and odor to it’s surface, creating a sweeter-smelling, healthier air for chickens to breathe.

1 tablespoon of Sweet PDZ, 1 tablespoon of water.

MOISTURE CONTROL
Sweet PDZ can absorb approximately 40-50% of its weight in moisture. A 1,000 pound horse produces approximately 51 lbs of manure (feces plus urine) per day. The average laying hen produces approximately 1/4 lb of manure per day. If horse keepers swear by Sweet PDZ for its superior moisture and odor control, chicken keepers would be wise to use it to their advantage as well.

Less moisture means less risk of coccidiosis in brooders and in coops during warm weather.

Sweet PDZ is a food grade mineral, which means it is edible. When chickens eat it, Sweet PDZ serves as natural grit, which aids in digestion. It also makes droppings drier and smell less!

WICKED GOOD FERTILIZER
Sweet PDZ acts as a compost enhancement and slow-release fertilizer in gardens. Here’s the Chem 101 breakdown of how it does that: ammonia gas molecules stick to the surface of the Sweet PDZ granule and when the granule dries out, the ammonia molecule is driven off the surface of the granule as nitrogen, creating a slow release nitrogen/potassium fertilizer.

VERSATILE & SAFE
Sweet PDZ can be used with all bedding types, including sand, pine shavings and chopped straw/hay blends. It provides additional absorbency to bedding, allowing it to perform more efficiently and last longer.

Can be used in the chicken run as well as inside the coop.

Safe to handle with bare hands. Safe to breathe and use without a respirator, unlike diatomaceous earth (DE). I do not recommend using DE around chickens. Read why in this article.

Reusable: can be washed and dried in the sun, returning it to its original chemical state.
Unscented, not an odor cover-up, but an actual odor neutralizer.
Dries as it deodorizes.

HOW TO USE SWEET PDZ
For the first use in a clean, empty coop, sprinkle a thorough and visible layer of on the floor followed by the bedding of choice (sand, shavings, straw, etc) Add a sprinkle of Sweet PDZ daily or a few times per week to keep harmful odors from accumulating. Easy-peasy!

GEO-GEEK SPEAK
(more than you might need to know)
Empirical Formula: (K,Ca,Na) 20-AL203-10Si02-6H20
Chemical Family: Molecular Sieve
Mineral name: Potassium-Calcium-Sodium-Aluminosilicate (more generally called, hydrated aluminosilicates)
Synonym: Clinoptilolite aka Clino (This is one of forty-eight varieties of natural occurring zeolite minerals)

SWEET PDZ’s UNIQUE MINERAL FUNCTIONS 
Sweet PDZ neutralizes and locks up ammonia and odors naturally through mineral functions known as Cation Exchange and Adsorption.
CATION EXCHANGE is the liquid exchange function of the odor neutralization process of Sweet PDZ. A sodium or potassium cation from the Sweet PDZ crystal hydrolyzes (goes into the liquid/urine/urates) and the ammonium is exchanged, becoming part of the Sweet PDZ crystal.
ADSORPTION/DESORPTION happens on the surface of the Sweet PDZ crystal. The ammonia gas molecule sticks to the surface of the crystal. The crystal desorbs when heated or dried, releasing the ammonia from the crystal as nitrogen, making it a fantastic slow-release fertilizer.

WHERE TO BUY SWEET PDZ and Healthy World Pet Deodorizer:
There are thousands of Sweet PDZ retailers throughout the United States, many of which also sell Sweet PDZ in a smaller, green packaging as Healthy World Pet Deodorizer. Both sizes are also available online HERE (in a 40lb bag) and HERE (in a 3.5 lb bag).

Sweet PDZ products are available wherever Manna Pro Products are sold and can be found using this Dealer Locator Tool. For assistance locating a dealer, call Sweet PDZ directly at 800-367-1534 or email info@sweetpdz.com

    I've seen sweet PDZ at our local farm co-op in large bags. I've never seen the small bags. I'll have to look!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Can you use JUST the PDZ in the coop instead of mixing it with bedding?? To me that seems like I'm defeating the purpose of using it?? I'm thinking it sounds great to lay in the roost and the run instead of bedding and just scoop up droppings with like a small mesh basket??!! Wow that would really be a nice clean coop!!??

  23. Eva J Hargrave8/6/14, 6:29 PM

    I have a question. In reading the above info, I saw a pic of a Roo with frostbite. This seems like the wrong time of year to be asking, however we had a very cold winter for us in Texas. And my rooster has a very large comb which I believed it have been struck by frostbite. Of course I don't know everything, and I decided to wait it out. Now in the HEAT of the summer one by one of the points on his beautiful comb have turned black and fallen off. Is this normal for frostbite? I clicked on the link above and it said the page is unavailable. It seems as they deterorate away a new appendage forms. But not near as pretty as it was. Anything I can do now?

    What you are describing is totally normal for frostbite to turn black and fall off, but the area does not regenerate.

    Debbie - I would sprinkle a visible covering of PDZ on the ground before you put the sand down then put another visible covering on top of the sand. (maybe 3-4 cups) both on bottom and top.

  195. Sharon Blutcher8/7/14, 12:08 PM

    DE does nothing for the neutralization of ammonia. DE does help absorb moisture but to get rid of the odor PDZ works best.

    Gabriela - Where do you live, perhaps there is another dealer in your area.
