We have 10 hens...6 mixed (RIR? RSL?) and 4 EE. I have a completely enclosed run with sand. It has 3 perches outside for them and inside the coop it has 2 perches and then the nesting boxes. My question is this...do I need to put other things out in the run to keep them from getting bored?? They don't free range but I am out with them at least twice a day and always bring them treats. (greens...etc.) I just don't want them to be bored and start turning on each other. We have one EE that is the head hen and she is almost like a hawk...I don't want her to get mean. Thanks!!
