One last question...I'm doing deep litter bedding in the brooder - should I just continue to add more pine shavings n stir or should I add DE or something else for preventing mites n stuff.

DE is worse than useless.

It doesn't do anything about mites AND it is a respiratory irritant.

My philosophy is Don't Treat Problems I Don't Actually Have. :)

I just keep adding more shavings until I absolutely HAVE to clean. Have you read my Deep Bedding article?
