    Blasting sand? From what I understand it should be okay. If it was a large grain, then I would change out all the sand so they don't hurt their skin, but otherwise they'll be just fine [​IMG] I would change out all the sand anyway, since some brands are coated in different minerals that may or may not be harmful to chickens.
