We are in the final stages of finishing our coop. The hen house is raised 3' above the floor and the whole coop is covered (including the run). I was going to put wood mulch on the floor of the run but now am wondering if that is the best option? I was planning on shoveling it all into the compost pile whenever it needed to be cleaned out. Would sand be a better idea (and forgo the compost additions)? Opinions please!

we put sand in ours and so far I think it's working out great. Just a couple minutes at the end of the day to freshen it up with a rake and kitty litter scoop. I'm not sure what I'll do with my outdoor chicken yard, once they clear the vegetation... maybe sand too.
