    I recently found out that you can buy diapers and jumping hurdles for chickens! I was wondering what other weird stuff I can waste my money on. And what kind of cool trick you can teach them!

    I think diapers are cruel.....but tricks are AWESOME! I teach my chickens "HUP" i hold a treat in my hand and say "hip" and the second i say it pull the treat up...its very easy...they catch on quickly...so they have to jump up for the treat! xx

    You can get those little coloured leg bands, and ones with charms on them.

    I'd be worried they'd swallow them and choke. Or get so fascinated with the shiny that they do themselves an injury by pecking at it.

    And they don't look comfortable. Just a coloured zip tie.

    Mine might possibly have a parrot mirror to gaze at themselves in. They only get it on a monday, when I'm away for the whole day. No matter what time I leave or come home, they're looking at themselves in it, so I assume they do that all day.....

    Weirdos.
