    We finally got some desparately-needed rain. Of course, now the chickens are stuck inside. And, of course, with nothing better to do, the roos are fighting!

    What is entertaining to a chicken? Anything, besides food? [​IMG]

    Unless you're having a monsoon, they won't mind being outside.
    Other than that, hanging a head of lettuce or cabbage from a string so that they can jump for it is good for them.

    No, no TV. There's too much violence and too many half-dressed chicks! :eek:

    I let them out, instead.

    It was raining here this morning when I let my chickens out. They LOVED it!!!! I though for sure they would run back into the barn when the rain started to come down harder, but they were unfazed!.
