Hi! I have read quite a bit about hanging a head of cabbage to ward off boredom. Now I am pretty new to this chicken business, but I am wondering (seriously): 1 - What are the signs of a bored chicken? 2 - Are there any other tried and true "chicken simulators"? 3 - What do chickens do for fun? I am going to be out of town for a week and was wondering if there were other tricks I could leave with the "chicken sitters". Currently, to my untrained eye, they don't look bored...but I don't want to come home to find that in their boredom they have picked up playing poker (just kiddin) or some other nasty habit (plucking). I have 1 EE, 1 BR, 1 Black Australorp, 2 RIR and 2 Leghorns. They are about 3 months old. Currently they are in a 16'x7'covered run with 7'x4'coop until the permanent coop/run is set finished...hopefully SOON! Thanks!
