    It's super adorable! The chicks think its a bug so they go running after it and tucker themselves out trying to chase it. It also helps when it's nighttime and they won't settle down; helps get some energy out of their systems.
    Such a fun toy! [​IMG] Has anyone else tried this with their chicks?

    I did that with some Pekin ducks once and they ran with fright. You'd have thought that one of the horsemen of the apocalypse had descended from the sky after them.

    That's hysterical. Our cats go nuts after a laser pointer, but I never thought of seeing what the chickens thought of it!
