    I have the run/coop all in one up but it needs a couple inches more of substrate. I know the chickens will dig and do dust baths. Eventually, They will be in our all sandy soil, but for now, I was hoping to use bags of leveling sand in their run. Is this OK? Thanks! [​IMG]

    Lots of people use sand, of various types. It's probably the easiest to scoop poop out of, if you plan to.
