Pinless Peeper/Poultry Blinders? - Page 8

post #71 of 73

Oh yes, toys, especially in winter when they can't free range are the best!  I have cat treat balls with scratch in them, I put leaves (that I bagged up this fall) in the run, just today I added a flock block, I have 3 dust bathing areas, tree branches for roosts, and every couple of weeks I put about 1/4th of a bag of organic peat moss in the run, in a big chunk. they love scratching and pecking at it! basically pulling i apart.  My main feather picker has been pretty good for about 2 months now, hopefully she breaks herself of the habit permanently.  good luck!

Thank you so much for the information on the nipple water system.   I've been worried about that before putting on the peepers due to our watering system inside and outside the coop.   I will also keep a bowl of water out (yucky gets dirty quick), but just in case.   Thanks again on this information.
