Adding interest to the run....

Recommended Posts

I just wondered what other people have in their runs to add a bit of interest to their chickens lives whilst they are 'indoors'? I have a tree stump that they like standing on and a mirror they have got bored with, not much I know but I can't think what else to put in! Any ideas would be most welcome! :D

We have an old tree stump in the run which they like to take turns on to stand and look out over the garden.

 

We have something called "sweetcorn swingball" - a corn on the cob tied up with some string keeps our girls amused, and they get a bit of extra nourishment (and neck exercise).

 

I do tend to leave them to get on with it during the day whilst I am at work; they don't seem the worst for it.

i've got a tree stump and some logs, cd hanging up which they love looking at (very vain girls :lol: ) a couple of logs, some platforms on the the remains of an old tree, they like sitting on them and a dustbath (which they ignore completely :roll: ) to be honest they seem to enjoy digging lovely big holes around the edges of the wir then all piling in, snuggling up and having an afternoon nap :lol:

We have a log, an IKEA shoe rack for them to perch and we have also just bought a parrot perch that bolts on to the mesh, however they haven't used it yet, :roll:, peckablocks, a fat ball holder stuffed with vegetables and salad, whole corn on the cobs (though Obvioulsy I don't give the food treats all at once! :D )
