I've read through a lot of posts on the use of DE, and I don't think it's been specified. I'm using the deep litter method and it's working great so far. I put down some DE, and tried using a flour sifter, but it didn't work too well. I read that another person uses old pantyhose, but I didn't have any available, so I just grabbed a bunch in my hand and kind of tossed it around on the floor and in the nest boxes. What I put down probably amounted to a fine spreading in most places, with a few mounds in others. How do I know the right amount to use? Did I use too much or too little?
