    I have a fiberglass grecian style planter I bought for flowers on the porch. The first thing that happened was my cat decided that it was just the right size and shape for a cat bed. So much for the flowers. Then the chickens found it and said the fluffy potting soil in the planter was much nicer for dust bathing than the clay soil in the yard. When we built the chicken run I decided they could have the planter in there as they like it so much. (I was feeling bad about kicking them out of the garden and penning them up a bit). It doubles as a lookout tower and jungle gym. Your birds look pretty happy!

    Naughtyhens....be thankful the cat didn't use it as a litter tray......

    My birds definitely rule the roost, the garden, the fields, the house etc.
