    So I began adding sand to the coop today. I have 500lbs in so far and it just covers the floor (8x8) with about an inch or less.

    How deep should it be?

    I think we are planning on four inches minimum.

    Hmmm....I will have to raise the threshold at the doorway then. It is only a 2x4 high.
