    1. I have done a few of these ideas, my 11 hens love all I have tried
      I plan on putting a swing in thier coop this fall or next spring

  1. Great ideas! My chicks would LOVE the cucumber tether! The poop hammock. I must say, is brilliant! Keeping the coop floor clean is one of my main obsessions 😂.

    Thanks

  2. I tried the chicken swing. It was hilarious watching them try to get on it. They kept missing it. Absolutely worth it.
