    I was thinking with my chicks in the living room they should have some kind of place they can run to when feeling scared to make them feel secure. I tried putting a small box in there with a "door" cut out but that didn't work. I thought about making like a shelf in the corner for them to hide under, nah not secure enough. So now I'm thinking...it would be so easy to just stick a feather duster in there. Would they use it? Would it be safe? Would they be afraid of it?
