    I realize to some (mostly my family) this will seem silly but I really would love some suggestions on toys (home-made or bought) for my chickens. I sit and watch my chickens and they seem to have a pretty monotonous life. I already give them treats, scratch etc. but isn't there something else they can do for chicken entertainment?

    A dust bath? (Tire on its side full of dirt or sand)

    Quote:I did recently fill up a square conainter for a dust bath but I have to keep it in the coop because of the rain. There is absolutely no grass or anything edible in the run any longer so they can't scavenger hunt. I appreciate your idea, thanks and if you think of anything else please let me know [​IMG]

    i throw seed/scratch in the shavings on the floor of the coop for them to scavenge for. they get to hunt and they turn up the shavings for me [​IMG].
