    I wasn't sure what thread this would go under, so I went with this one. :) I have heard of people giving their chicks and or chickens toys to keep them busy. What do you give them? I am interested in hearing what people come up with.

    The best "toy" for a chicken is a head of cabbage on a rope..... [​IMG]

    My New Hampshires love it...... [​IMG]

    Core a small head of cabbage, run a rope through the middle, tie a knot in it, hang it where they can peck and pull at it.

    LOL. That sounds entertaining, and healthy for the bird as well.

    One of the interesting toys I have heard of is someone putting those little tiny cat balls that are hallow with the bell inside in with their baby chicks. They would take and toss it around. :)

    My chicks like a mirror and things at different levels to clime on.
