    Is there anything I can do during the winter to keep my hens entertained so they don't pick each other's feathers?
     
  2. Hang a head of cabbage. they will have to hit and play with it in order to eat it.

    I tried that but they don't like cabbage.
     
  4. you could make a treat ball. It's a usually a DIY ball with different size hole in it that you fill with scratch and seed. you could also build a swing for them

    What kind of swing could I build for them? I found a treat ball online like that. Does it really keep them entertained?

  7. Yes the treat ball is WONDERFUL.
    You can just get a large tree branch, dill a hole in both ends and tie a rope
