    Chicken toys = weeds and bugs! For real fun, toss a whole tomato in there and watch chicken rugby. It's pretty funny!

    IMHO I tried the whole toy thing but it only took up more space and left me more to clean when the time came. They really didn't "play" with any of it and would peck a time or 2 then leave it alone.

    Now give them any type of pasta and they go bonkers...make sure however, that they are ready to have something like this. They are a riot to watch. This is better than any toy and the cleanup is easy as well. It will vanish...[​IMG]

    I agree with the other posts. I give mine different treats such as lettuce, tomaties, watermellon etc.. It's fun to watch them. Mine also have a ladder in their run they like to climb on. There are pictures on my BYC Page.
