    So I was thinking of getting a small planter and placing like 3 or 4 kitty grass plants inside do you think the chickies would like that????

    They would love that for all of the 5 minutes that it took them to eat and destroy the plantings.

    We just took a chunck out of our yard for ours and they've already destroyed the stalks. Maybe the roots will take?

    Quote:plant the roots and put an inverted wire basket over the roots. The grass can grow up out of it, but the birds can't destroy the roots. I saw that a couple days ago here on BYC and that guy's ingenuity and set-up were amazing.
