Thanks for the advice and i will for shure try thisYou could try putting in a perch for them to roost and jump on. You can make a separate area for them to start practicing their scratching made of sand and *small bits of gravel. Which is also good for them to eat since they need little rocks and such things in their crops so they can grind their food. Other then that chickens are not like puppies they don't need toys to be entertained. As they grow the chicks will play with themselves. You can also take them out on the grass and show them how to scratch in the dirt if they dont already know how. They will like trying to catch little bugs on the ground.
