    Was wondering what sort of fun items chickens like. We just released our 6 week old pullets into the new coop. Right now, it is awfully empty. Just your standart roosts and a ramp. What can I put in there for fun that they might enjoy? Do chickens play? Thanks!

    I've given mine balls to roll around. Bells on the ends of strings hung from the covered run.

    They do well with food!
