Happy and Safe ChickensPreparation Methods for Wire Under the Run
Keeping your chickens safe is a priority for backyard chicken keepers. We have been recommending and installing wire under the run to protect chickens for years and have had successful outcomes in keeping chickens safe. One method for covering the wire is the use of corse construction sand. The second is to use both gravel or pond gravel preferable, and then add the corse construction sand on top. Since chicken do not urinate, their dropping can then be raked from the sand without much effort. Sand can be changed out based on your schedule or annually.
