    I'm looking to use river sand as bedding for my coop. I'm having a hard time trying to find a place locally that sells "river sand". Where can I get some around Torrance, CA?

    I would suggest you just buy several 50 pound bags of "all purpose" or "construction sand" at any home improvement store. It will have lots of little rocks and pebbles in it. I use this type of sand for sheltered dust bathing bins during rainy weather. Plenty of bits for grit for the chickens, too.
