Best Material For Chicken Run Floor?


In the Brooder

I've got 2 chickens in a Coop outside. I use Wood Shavings for the inside of the Coop itself but I'm wondering what can I put on the run flooring outside as the chicken poo is ruining the patio flooring and staining it.

I've read a few articles on using Sand as it's cheap and easy to clean but which type of sand would be best for the Run? I need something low maintenance, as of right now I'm cleaning the run out fully everyday which is becoming tiring and time consuming.

Thank you.

Yes, photos are a must.
.....and your location would really help :D
Where in this world are you located?
Climate is almost always a factor.
Please add your general geographical location to your profile.
It's easy to do, (laptop version shown), then it's always there!
