How often do I need to add DE to the coop and run?

    Just made my first application today. When will I need to do it again?

    I toss some in my coop about once a month in the summer. Throw a handful of scratch on top and let the chickens mix the layers.

    In my run, I do it once a week unless it rains really bad because that usually makes it stink more.

    I didn't realize I'd have to add it so often, but I will. Thanks.
