Aubiose, Easi-bed or other alternatives.

Recommended Posts

I only use Aubiose in the coop. I generally clean it every day, at the very least poo pick it. I have used sand successfully on the run floor for 2 years now. I poo pick nearly every day. I refresh the sand once a year.


I personally wouldn't use Aubiose on the run floor as I would need so many bales it wouldn't be cost effective. We used 30 bags sharp sand initially and topped up with about 20 last time.

My OH gets it and he says it's course sharp sand or around here it can be called Thames washed sand. Some garden centres sell it but you can get it from a builders merchants. It gets heavy and claggy when wet; the run is covered but it blows in the sides. However, in its favour, the sand, even when wet, stops the girls getting anything caked on their feet and it's a huge dust bath.


I hope that helps.
