I was wondering about using sand inside the coop as opposed to just Pine Shavings as it would be easy to rake and scoop during the wet winter. So my questions for those using sand inside the coop are: Is the sand itself warm enough bedding? (My little girls like sleeping on the floor as opposed to the roosts just yet) What type of sand do you use (kid's play sand, construction sand etc)? Is it safe for them should they eat some of it? Because our winters are so wet, I thought sand in there for the winter would be much easier to clean. They will have their straw in the nest boxes, heat lamps and their roosts of course. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
