Welcome to BYC! I am a new member too but I have been getting valuable information from here for almost a year! Great place!
Lots of knowledge people so I know you will find out the best way to take care of your chicken area.

I don't know the best way... I just rake my small area and recover it with very fine pine shavings. If the ground needs more help than that, I sprinkle lime powder in the soil to help break down the waste. I mix it in before I place the shavings.

There is an article on here about using sand but I don't know about that being best.
