    Anyone know a reason not to use cyprus mulch (as opposed to wood chips ore straw) in an open air outdoor run?

    Any type of mulch will just hold moisture.

    Unless it's in a low area where water stands, sand or bare dirt work better

    The chickens are going to want to dig and take dust baths
