    I am at the local Landscape store. they have Masonary sand would that work good for a chicken coop and the run.

    I recommend against quicksand around your chickens.

    Yeah quick sand is dangerous if you get stuck in it, masonry sand is just fine that's what I used it cleans easily.

    Quicksand is treacherous because of the substrate beneath it.
