    well just an idea.
    but you can put hay in the middle and have your chickens lay eggs in them.

    Me too! I have some laying around here that I can't figure out what they're good for either. Cost too much to haul them to the dump.[​IMG]

    MandyH You'll shoot your eye out!

    OH those things are GREAT!!!!! If you put hay just inside the tire under the lip the birds will lay in there and be sheltered from the sun and wind and all. I also LOVE them for raised beds, especially for potaotos, peanuts, carrots and strawberries.

    Cut them up and use them as nest-boxes.

    OR...you might have just found the opening to your new chicken coop!

    OR! If you have a dog that LOVES to run....put some wire mesh on the outside of the circles...insert dog...and watch him run into all SORTS of things! (Kind of like a gerbil in one of those wacky balls)
