Silly question I'm sure: Is there a certain way to rinse sand from the backyard to use in the inside brooder? I have switched to sand instead of pine shavings (they were eating way too many). However it has created a thick layer of dirt all over everything in the room. I won't be able to use it unless I can get the dust way down. I've heard of people rinsing it, I think to help. Do I just get it all wet (mix it up) in the bucket and then drain off the excess water? I will bake it on 200 degrees in the oven when I'm done to dry it out and kill any bacteria.
