I have a small chicken coop with 7 chickens in it (it's not that small). They seem to love the bedding that they have right now but since it's winter right now the stuff that I put in their run just becomes mud each time it snows and then melts. So underneath the coop part of it we put plexiglas glass so it stays dry there but in the main area it is almost always muddy so woul it be alright to use sand in the area that always gets muddy and keep the bedding in the other part or would the sand be to gritty and hurt them? I can't wai till I can figure out a solution and not have to keep trying to clean mud out every day or so. I'm not lazy it's just a hassle and my chickens don't enjoy it either. Thanks so much!!
