So last night I was playing with my cat who is feeling neglected by my love and distraction of the chicks when I had a brilliant idea-- My chicks LOVED it! I used my little laser pointer (a red dot) and moved it around in my brooder. The chicks chased after it and pecked at whatever it was sitting on. (I was VERY careful not to get i t in their eyes or on them at all so they didn't peck each other.) Anyway, it was much amusement for all involved, me, DH, chicks, and cat so I thought I would share. I feel so bad for them stuck in their cage when it is cold and rainy outside so I can't give them a trip outside and now at least I can provide some entertainment for them!!
