    We have these rocks on the ground in the area we are going to be building our coop and run. Do I need to rake them all out of the area, or will they be okay?

    Hello [​IMG]and Welcome to BYC! I think they would be fine to leave them. I not sure, but in the picture they look harmless.

    They're all rounded, no real sharp edges, but I'm new to chickens, and have read about rocks causing cuts, so was a little worried. We will be putting down sand too, so maybe that will just cover them enough tt we won't need to move it all.

    Thanks!
