I was looking up chicken activity ideas for my 4 hen flock. I have a rather large back yard enclosed with a 6' privacy fence and in the morning the coop is opened and they have the run of the yard. I seen online a guy took an old swing set attached a pole near the ground so his chickens could perch on it while in the yard. I wondered if this was a good idea. One, would they even use it during the day and two, if they do would it deter them from going into their coop at the end of the day. Note; if I were to make one I have a spot thick with trees where they would be pretty safe from winged predators.
