    But some scratch or cracked corn they love it and it reduces boredom....Also my chickens in the summer they dug out holes so we had to fill them=, so when we filled them we filled it with some gritty soil and they pick at it and LOVE it, good luck!

    Your Welcome, also like you said you prob. could hang some shoelaces and they would play with them as long as they can't eat it, it should be good

    I gave my chicks several different types and sizes of things to climb on... example a large piece of toot(dh had to cut of a dead tree, homemade roosts made out of scrap wood ...

    I hang cage bird toys in their run. They seem to like bright colors.
