If you are talking the bagged stuff, I like wood chips or big shavings better if you can't get sand or gravel, they hold up better than bark and don't mold as easily. If you mean you are chipping it yourself, I don't worry if it is mixed wood/bark, I do try to avoid getting any black walnut though.

You can put most anything in the run. Some of it is easier to manage than others. It is possible to put nothing in the run, and just go with the native soil.
