    Hi all!

    I have done some research and it seems like most people recommend sand for the chicken run, and specifically construction sand. I don't have the ability to buy from a large sand company so my options are limited to what is at home depot/lowes. They sell "coarse" and "medium" sand, and play sand but I read that can harm their lungs. Which would be better for a run?

    Looks like options are all purpose or multipurpose sand.
