Puting mulch under coop

I am setting up my coop right now. The coop sits about 2 feet off the ground. I also have a run connected to the coop...almost! The area under the coop is a bit muddy and shallow. Is it okay for me to put a bag of Scott's brown mulch under there? It is organic. Is says that the ingredients are forestry wood and coloring. I just want to make sure that this won't harm my 2 chickens.
Thank you!!

Mulch would get very messy with the poop. It can also be very sharp on the chickens. A better option would be sand. It drains very well, and dries quicker than mud. It keeps the chickens feathers clean and also the bottom of your shoes! I have sand in my coop and my run and it is totally odorless and sooooooo easy to maintain.
