Hi there. Can anyone tell me what's best to use on the floor of the small run I have? Is there any reason it cannot go on top of the pebbles and weed-retarding membrane that is on the ground already, or do I need to remove these to leave bare earth? Thanks.

Hey lizzy, I would take that up and let them have the weeds and the dirt. They will peck at the weeds and keep the bugs eaten, and you will be able to rake or shovel it clean. :D

Ok thanks guys. I'll clear it away and leave bare earth. Do I need to put wire under the coop to stop foxy digging under?
