The new chicken playground. It's actually their new outdoor roosting area. They have been roosting on the rims of our large earthy planters. We figured the only way to get them to stay off the planters is to give them their own play area. My husband just built this today. Now we have to see how they take to it. (See our bunny in the center rear of the photo. He visits us every day. He doesn't seem to mind the chickens and they don't seem to mind him either.)
