I am considering using sand in my coop as well as in the run. So far I've heard nothing but good reports from people saying they love it! The only 'bad' thing I read was where one person reported that it was too cold for them to stand in, in the winter. That her chickens preferred to leave the coop and stand outside rather than inside on the sand.
Can any of you who live in cold areas comment on whether you've had issues with that? Thanks so much!
If course construction sand is favored by some, then why wouldn't pea gravel be good for all the same reasons?
Hey! I like your sand on the poop board idea.
Off subject...can someone explain how to highlight a portion of a post that you want to respond to? Thanx
Went out to a concrete plant before work yesterday to take a look at the different sand options. What do you guys think?
In my opinion, based on what I have read you want the first one...with maybe a mix of the 3rd one... the larger pebbles will help with drainage.
