    Would it be ok to leave red lava rocks/pumice stones in the chickens' run? They have been weathered outside for years, and I could move them, but if I don't have to, that would be great!

    Pumice stones tend to be coarseand lumpy in texture. I would be concerned about comfort, if not issues such as foot injuries and Bumblefoot.

    I decided to rake them out of the way, only to change my mind about putting the run in that location. Isn't that how it goes? Lol!
