    I'm estimating that my chicks are a week and a half old. I let them run amuck in a secure area for a good part of the day. Is there anything I can give them to make life a little more interesting, or do all chickens just wander and chase each other?

    I'm not much on play toys for chicks. Actually I tried it once with some little plastic balls intended for cats. I removed them after a few hours because the chicks kept getting their little legs stuck in the holes.
    They run, they play, they chase bugs. That's fun to a chick.
