    We put the milk crates in the coop so we could sit on them when we're hanging out with the chickens. But our chickens love to play on them like a jungle gym! We stack them and they hop right up. A friend of ours uses these milk crates, with one side cut out, as nesting boxes. He gave us quite a few when we built our coop, but we decided to just build boxes instead. So now, these serve as seats/monkey bars. LOL

    Excellent idea !!!
    I keep thinking of what kindof "play stuff" I can put in their run, when it is done.
    But the way the DH is spending my money on the coop itself, they might have to wait to get outside !!! [​IMG]
