We have been using hay, but that has resulted in 2 of our chickens dying of impacted crops, and otherwise having their innards clogged with lay, which their water or food had spilled into. My chicken co-housing chicken coop and I are trying to find ways to prevent this happening to any more of our chickens.

Yes, important distinction! Thanks, for the reminder,, Rochelle.Will discuss with the rest of my "coop" co-op members. ~:0)
Hi Robin ~ Thank you. I will check to see what our sand sources are...and would definitely not use play sand, either, for a number of reasons.
Our group does consult The Chicken Chick. Love her blog...which has been very useful to us. ~:0)
I put the grit in their food. Should I be putting it in a separate container? Also, don't they eat some of the sand as their grit?
's'allright, Bill. Thanks for stopping by. :0)
