my chickens aren't really going crazy. My hens(and rooster) are just under a year old, I think, and have never seen a flake of snow in their lives! Well, winters coming for me, and up here, they're normally pretty big winters. Already, my coop is muddy and dull, my chickens are constantly flapping around(before they used to just walk around, scratch, peck, the usual) and if they're this crazy before snow, what`ll they do when they CANT go outside? That's not my mine question. What Im really asking is, what can I do to keep my hens happy and busy? Any ideas? Ive set up perches in their pen, and even cut down a small pine tree and pinned it to their pen wall. They don't seem to care. Now that its wet season, Ive been putting their food inside, too, so they can scratch. But they are still hyped up and I am losing my mind. Also, my rooster is really goin at it. Do you know why this is? Please help, Im only a new chicken-raiser!
