thanks Unit

It's for my chicken run, we are adopting 3 battery hens soon and it seems in a closed run  sand is the best when on slabs :smile according to the battery hen society.

 

And for someone who has 7 O levels maths wasn't one of them (just scraped chemistry) (also crowing a bit then !!)

So thank you Unit for the answer and Steve, you are a silly boy:biggrin:

but if you've the space then get 2 agg bags, cause you'll be skipping them out and you'll need to replace the sand, oh and they'll flick it everywhere :biggrin:

in all seriousness tho

BB, why bother with the aggro, my sis keeps x battery hens and they are more than happy on what was the garden, as they like to scratch and peck in the soil.....

I know steve

but I was a little perturbed with the cleaning out and I want them near the house rather than away where grass is available , if that makes sense.

 

We'll see how it all works out, the last adoption day was a couple of weeks ago so I have time to get the siting right .

Got to try and put the chicken house together first, better get my drill charged up for the weekend, I love my drill:smile
