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.
I would agree. You do want some of those larger granules, but not 100%. What about 2/3 of #1 and 1/3 of #3, something like that?
Oooooh I just quoted two people at once for the first time. 8}}} Nice feature. Thank you both for your quick and thoughtful replies. After all my research, field trips to several concrete/gravel plants, I'm going with my first plan: deep litter. I don't know if this is the permanent spot for my coop and moving all the sand was going to be money, time, etc. I'm using shavings and then leaves from the trees in my yard. So far my 7 wk old chicks are loving it. Time will tell for me. Thank you again! Being able to consult with fellow BYCers is invaluable to me.
