I raised chickens a long time ago so I am having to relearn most everything. When I had them before I just let them out to free range and chase grasshoppers - we have tons of grasshoppers arrive every summer. It never occurred to me that they could get bored. I never heard of bored chickens or providing entertainment for them before. (Actually, since joining BYC I've found there are a LOT of things I never thought of before.) So what's the deal with chicken toys??
