Right now my run is a muddy mess!! I am deciding on whether I want to use a mulch floor or a sand floor for it. But... my dad wants mulch because: 1. when you clean it out you can spread it over the gardens 2. if you had sand, he doesn't want it for about two years then have me go to college or if the chickens are gone, what is he suppose to do with all this sand. 3. it wouldn't make such a big mess with shoes/boots. I want sand because: 1. I think it would be softer on their feet 2. It would look nicer than the mulch 3. I've heard it drains easier and isn't that hard to clean. What are your thoughts on this? I may only have these birds until I graduate from high school in two years. He doesn't want to have to deal with all this sand. All opinions are appreciated.
