    My kids are growing too fast. The youngest is 9 and too big for the little tykes jungle gym we bought years ago. I am too sentimental to throw anything away, and have been hanging on to this toy for years. Finally, my husband said to me the other day " get rid of it." I said in a fit of desperation, "maybe the chickens would like it."
    Sure enough, we put it in the run and the birds love it. They perch on the ropes, dust bathe in the shade under it and roost on the top.
    So, don't throw out your old toys and jungle gyms, give them to the chickens! the pic is from little tykes of what the jungle gym looks like. I have yet to get pics of the chickens on ours, sorry.
