    I'd avoid things that can be swallowed such as balls and strings.

    Just a pile of leaves, a half a mellon, shavings sprinkled with bugs, crickets, and corn would keep them entertained and happy!

    I throw poopcorn balls out for my ducks and chicken. I got them 18 for a buck.

    Hang a head of lettuce or cabbage on a string or chain. They will amuse themselves while getting something green this time of year when grass is scarce.
