    should I use DE right away with chicks in the brooder or should I wait till they get into the coop? How often do I use it? Should I put it in the enitre bag of feed or as I fill the feeder? thanks!!

    Chicks are coming anytime between tomorrow and thurs!!! CANT WAIT!

    I've never given chicks DE in their food until they're older but I do sprinkle some under their litter in the brooder just in case some bugs come in with the litter.
