    I am looking for ideas of what I can put in my chickens run to entertain them during the day when I cant let them out to free range.

    I have a pretty large run, I made them a jungle gym out of some old fenceposts and some cinderblocks. they love climbing on it [​IMG]
    I should get some pics of it.. but I'm usually too lazy to go back to the house and get the camera that I forgot to bring with me.

    Mostly chickens like playing with the minds of their keepers. [​IMG]

    Hanging heads of cabbage in the run, providing 'Flock Block' type supplements, scattering small amounts of scratch all provide chickens with boredom reliever activities.
