Does anyone use this in your coops/dirt runs? Is it effective? Thinking about using it in my dirt run to help with odor.

I didn't find any scientific studies but they are not afraid to tell you it is actually lime. It's expensive but I don't see anything that makes it dangerous to use around the birds.

I use barn lime as part of my coop cleaning regimen. It is also tremendously beneficial for helping to balance and sweeten the manure.

I think where the big confusion comes from is that there are two limes, one that is safe to use and one that causes burns. And because I haven't used it in years I can't remember which is which.
