Has anyone got a chicken swing that their hens aren’t interested in? I’d love to try one but Omlet are out of stock and there’s nothing on eBay.

Make one from an old branch or an old broom handle and some washing line.  Drill a hole in each end.  Thread the line through and a few knots to hold it.  You can make it any length you like.  You could even make a double.  I’m going to make one soon.  I have the wood ready but other stuff came up and I haven’t had spare time.  

Going to make  a simple ladder from branches too.  All our perches are branches.  Just need to make sure there’s no sharp bits and they are a good width.  

I like the idea of the natural wood as it means the chickens feet aren’t always on the same size poles.

I was bought one as a present about 3 years ago.  Not a single hen uses it.  I’d make one if I were you as ajm suggests.
