    I read in a book that chicken toys can be used in order to keep boredom away. Can anyone give me a suggestion? Thanks

    Treats are their favorites. Try hanging a head of cabbage where they can barely reach it. It will keep them busy for a long time.

    They are chickens. I don't think they need Baby Einstein, just enough room to explore and access to other chickens. [​IMG]

    My husband built "mini roosts" that are about 2-3 inches high. They jump over them, sit on them, and sometimes sleep (roost) on them. They are 2 weeks old today.

    I put a clear plastic baby rattle in with them. They could see the beads inside and played with it alot.

    I agree, they are chickens...........
    However a tube is crickets is a lot of fun, but I am not sure how old they should be to enjoy that.
