Chicken Run Flooring

We are just starting to build our coop & run. If you have a chicken run, what do you use as flooring? Not sure if we want to just leave grass/dirt/mud. I've been reading about sand, pine shavings, etc. There will be a roof over the entire coop & run. We will most likely use pine shavings in the coop. The chickens will be able to free range in our yard when we are outside with them. Any advice?

Sorry for the delayed response Kara, I didn't see the message come thru until I logged in today. For runs, I just use dirt. They love to dust bathe in it plus they find little stones to eat to help with their digestion. If you use grass or any vegetation they will eat it down and kill it in no time.
