So I've read and read and I'm just not sure so I thought I would just ask for opinions. I want to change over my coop and run to sand. Right now, the coop has pine shavings and the run is grass. Well, it WAS grass, until wet weather set in and now it's covered over in a nice grass hay. Both the coop and run are a BEAR to clean! I do not compost as I don't have anything to use the compost on right now. So it goes into a firepit. Did you know that wet, compacted pine shavings and wet, poopy grass hay DOES NOT burn well? I did not. So what I'm trying to say here is that it's a pain in my behind to keep the run and coop clean. I have read so many good things about sand in chicken coop/runs. But duck/goose feet are different than chicken feet so therein lies my question. Can they sleep/walk on river sand or construction grade sand ok? I guess I worry most about the webbed feet getting cut. But the sand in question doesn't look at all big. Just a little coarser than play sand. So if anyone has time, perhaps you could give me thoughts, opinions, advice... HELP! Please?
