I'm confused! I need to sprinkle lime on the ground in the chicken house/nesting boxes/run as a preventative for the constant attack from mites/lice. Do I use ag lime or hydrated lime?? Some forums say hyd. lime will burn whilst others recommend it. One produce store says ag. whilst the other recommends hydrated. Can someone please explain this to me once and for all?

I asked a few friends that have pure breed fowls as I don't have any pure breeds and they said they use the AG lime
