Yeah I don't think you would want to use 1/4 minus or anything with "minus" in it, it packs down really hard (makes a great base for flagstone!--I'm a landscaper). If you have a quarry with builders sand that is the way to go. Hopefully you have a truck to haul it in?

I've put several pickup loads of "river sand" in my run. It's from Red River and I get it from a construction company that is licensed to extract it. The chickens really seem to like it and there have been no adverse effects.
