    [​IMG] My run has been a little muddy so I picked up a bale of straw to put in it.I put in a few leafs of straw in the run whole.I then spread out some scratch in the run and threw it in on top of the leafs.It was awesome watching them tear up the leafs.They scratch and peck and scratch and peck.It was real enjoyable to watch[​IMG] This was yesterday.This morning I threw a few more leafs in without the scratch and they did the same thing.They were like kids.It was worth the straw just to watch them play.I will do this more often just to,watch them to play.[​IMG]
