Just wondering if sand in the run in the winter would be alright to keep the mud down.
Yes, sand really helps.
Sand is an excellent medium for a chicken floor, in the coop or run. It drains off well, drys out the poop, stops stink, flies and is easy to clean. The only downfall to sand, at least from what I have experienced is that in the winter, the sand in the shade gets colder than would a floor with hay or wood shavings on it. I use it in runs and coops, and the floors in the coops are colder. But this works well in the summer, as the floor is cooler and when wet down, will keep the floor cooler yet.
I am a sand fan...can you tell?? LOL
