I'm goin to put sand down in my coop this weekend, I read from someone on here that you need to use a silica free sand. I've been searching and I'm starting to think there is no such thing. What is everyone els using?

In front of wood stove keeping warm.
I have heard about this "silica free" sand also. I have been reading and learning about coop flooring all winter. I made the switch to "torpedo sand" I have no idea what the "torpedo" means but it is basically river sand. Drains like fine sand but it is coarse and the chickens can use it as grit. Nice thing also is that it is MUCH cheaper delivered than play box sand because its not as much in demand. The other thing I noticed since I made the change 2 weeks ago is the girls feet are spotless clean. No mud, no crud. Also they love to dig and dust bath in it. I think its the greatest so far.
