We don't really have dirt here, our "soil" is mostly sand which works out well for keeping our run clean (I can easily rake it). Maybe plain dirt is harder to keep clean? And it could get muddy when it rains. I think some people do put down hay or sand in their runs but you could get more opinions asking on the coop/run forum:

I've been doing some reading and I think eventually I will go with sand. The poop now just blends with the hard packed dirt I have and I want to be able to clean it. Thanks NorthFLChick

You're welcome! That's what's so great about BYC...sharing information, opinions, etc. I like to keep my chicken's living quarters clean (at least as much I can, they sometimes seem to work against me, lol).

 

Again, it's nice to have you here!
