    Is it okay to put beach sand in my run?

    I was hoping it would serve two purposes...

    #1- Easier to rake-over and have poop dry-out and not have muddy run [​IMG]

    #2- A source of grit to aid in digestion?...dunno know


    Would like your opinions, please [​IMG]

    I wonder if the salt in beach sand would have any affect?

    I use sand from the beach. Take the sand from the top of the beach. Farthest from the water.

    I leave grit free choice, but the girls don't eat it. Sand should suffice. [​IMG]

    I have been using beach sand for a year now. It's like having an over sized cat litter box...
