Hi, I live in Northern Florida and would like to put sand in the chickens run, have only four hens. What kind of sand would be suitable for that.  The only sand I am familiar with would be the pool filter sand and the play sand. I sure would appreciate a reply, for the chicken coop. is being built and soon the run will be put together. Using the hardware cloth and will will do all three sides. I sure appreciate the replies I have been receiving and the ones for this question.

Thanks again, Chickidi:jumpy

Hi, I'd suggest moving your post the "Coop and run - design etc" forum for assistance with your question cos you've posted on the new members forum.

 

Good luck and i hope you get the answers you are looking for (you can always type something like "using sand in the coop" and see what pops up).

 

Cheers

I buy Mason Type construction sand from a local independent landscaping supply company.  They deliver - and dump it by my driveway.  It takes a lot of sand and a lot of work to move it into the coop/run but worth the effort.

Welcome! Depending on how much sand you need, my husband and I just go to Home Depot and buy the 50 lb bags. We are only covering a small enclosed area though. We use the construction sand and it works very well for keeping things easier to clean.
