I would like to know which is better for in the chicken coop, straw or Pine chips. Our chicken yard/run is all sand ( we live in the desert ) should we put straw or pine chips there as well?

Definetly go with pine. Best choice for clean chcikens and makes them smell better

I use pine chips 4"deep in my coop.

I rake them every couple of days and i find they last longer this way and the chickens are always scratching them too!
