    I have sand in the duck area but I have just regular old gravel (like driveway gravel-no idea what #) and at first I thought it might bother their feet, but they actually prefer to lay on it sometimes, maybe because it cools them off.

    You have rockbiter gravel then! That stuff stays cool even on hot days - I might get some for around the stock tank i have set up in the 4x4 crate... would get good drainage.

    *wonders if anyone will get the reference* :)
