    Yeah I was thinking on planting something by the run so it isn't so blah... if I plant nasturtiums, that won't make them sick if they peck at it a little will it?

    I just planted 3 containers of Nasturtiums for us to share with the chickens. We use the leaves in salads and on sandwiches...the birds love both the leaves and flowers. [​IMG]
