I'm a less experienced chicken owner, but I have already learned the quirky and varied personalities of my chickens, and enjoyed the eggs.
Sometimes, I like to present my chooks with entertaining situations to see how they handle them, or fail :) After noting that on a hot day, they especially love the seeds out of a cold cantaloupe or watermelon, I would lay the cantaloupe out cut in half, the innards face down. The first time, they were frustrated, but they quickly learned to flip it over. 1-0 to me!
My next gag would be to put their beloved scratch in a see-through plastic cup, with a lid. They don't fall for that at all anymore. I could put the world's tastiest morsel in a cup and they know it has a forcefield. 2-0 to me!
Today, I discovered an accidental game - the joy of giving the chooks sticky rice. That glutinous mass of sticky sweet carbs. I know they like plain cooked rice, so seeing them jump on the sticky rice was no surprise. Seeing it stuck all over their faces, and getting everything else stuck to it - dirt, feathers, grass... Kaswell tried to wipe it off, failed, then looked at me with that accusing glare - YOU"RE RESPONSIBLE! - then deliberately walked over to me and wiped it off on my leg. 2-1, curses!
What gags and games do you play with your chickens to entertain yourself them?
