    I want to make my bantam runs more interesting for my birds, what bushes and plants can I plant in the runs that are safe, won't be eaten in seconds, and won't grow too big? [​IMG]

    I've seen some lovely runs with bushes in, not sure where though. If I potted some things would that help? I just want to make the runs less boring for them. [​IMG]

    I have a couple of cedar trees that I keep cut down to bush size and a crap apple tree that I keep at about 6 feet since my run is completely covered.
