    [​IMG] I've heard that some chickens love to look at themselves in a mirror. I believe the stringing CD's is a deterrent for hawks and other predators, not necessarily chicken toys. I believe one of the best things you can do to keep a chicken happy to give it lots of room to scratch and dig. Give them a nice place to have a dust bath as well.

    A chickens favorite toy is one that is food related. You pretty much covered all of them. Something else I do is throw a big pile of leaves in their run, then toss a few handfuls of scratch onto it. They go BANANAS!
