    They'll peck at anything red. My poor mum found this out when she walked into the pen wearing flip flops and red nail polish.

    I have one hen that goes for this one pair of PJ's. Its the funniest thing. Everytime I wear them and go to check on them in the morning she comes running.

    I have a small mole on one wrist that's a popular target. It was adorable when they were tiny, but not so much now that they can give me a good, hard peck.

    When they were in their cardboard box brooder, I drew a bunch of dots inside of it with a Sharpie. They LOVED them - kept 'em busy!

    I think a better question is: What do the silly things NOT want to peck at? [​IMG]
