My chickens are in my garage because of hurricane Sandy and they're getting really bored. I was on a website and it said that if you're chickens get bored they will start to peck eachother so you should give them sun flower seeds but i couldn't find any at Walmart or Target. What can I give them?????

I've used broccoli the same way as cabbage was mentioned. potatoes may work as well. Make em work for their supper.

Don't use potatoes. The skins can be toxic to birds.

Cabbage, broccoli, melons, different fruits/berries, heads of lettuce, flock blocks and scratch mixed into fallen leaves are all good ways to alleviate boredom. I would not worry too much about pecking for such a short duration. A few days inside is not long enough to let them get too bored.

Good luck.
