i know a truckload is cheaper and you probably get more but for me i need something i can get to the area in my yard where the coop and run are. and i think i found it. it can fit in a small pick up or can be set in a driveway rather than dumped all over the place. i think the price is like $30-$35. i am getting one next weekend to go into our run. i will give more details when i get them.
