It was my pleasure after all the help you have given me! I don't know enough about chickens to help anyone, but I do know how to research ;-). I thought it was the sand they use on the roads in the winter until they said differently. It helps to put a tarp down first if its not being dumped in a location where you want sand forever. I also found that a smaller dump truck is needed. The regular trucks haul 22 tons and don't want to be bothered with that kind of load. Our deliver was about $50 (more than the sand) Oh, I hope so too, but I was just waiting to hear from Mr Tattoohead (Sesame's owner). I hope the silence isn't bad news.
