    Anything that has to do with food is a great toy....Like one of those wire balls you put a cabbage in, or a flock block.

    Hanging some fresh ears of corn is a fun thing for chickens, and they LOVE fresh corn.

    Chickens like shiny things so you could glue shiny stuff on the walls and they might have a fun time pecking at it.
