Hi All, I've been looking to put new winter-friendly footing in my run and I scored big on Craigslist today.... Got some really nice pea gravel for free! I was originally planning to do sand , and may still do that on top of the pea gravel. However, if I can get away with just the gravel that would make me very happy. I do have a couple of questions for people who use it though: - Is it easy to clean? What do you use to clean it? - Should I make a dirt box or something similar for them to scratch around/dustbathe in? They have a favorite dirt spot in the yard when I let them free range but they only get out there on some evenings and on weekends when we're home. They spend the majority of ther time in the coop and run area. - Will it be ok to put the gravel down on top of the dirt run while it's soft? It's been fairly dry lately so it's not so much muddy as it is soft. I think the amount of gravel we're getting will allow for a depth of 3" to 4".
