The simplest game you can play with them is racing, get some small round treats (beans, grapes etc.) and roll them onto some hard surface such as your Pecking. Make a few small holes in the ground, then place something they enjoy pecking at, like apples or peaches. Watermelons, pumpkin, chicken jump, rotting log, or frozen cranberries in addition are a couple extra things to keep in mind.
Baked Goods Toy Ideas for Chickens
Baked and hard rolls will roll really well and are fun for the chickens to chase. Throw hard rolls and the chickens will play fetch, but don’t expect them to bring anything back to you. A loaf of french bread threaded onto a rope and hung from the ceiling makes a fun target to jump and rip bites off of. Small rolls studded on their fence are great for them to peck at. Bagels and non-frosted donuts are good to hang around the coop. You can also hang them from the ceiling or roll them across the ground. Bake some cookies to hang around the yard. A simple batter such as that for biscuits or cookies without sugar works well.
You may be wondering “What do chickens like to do?”
They love bells to ring, mirrors, xylophone to play music, colorful wooden beads to slide back and forth on a small wooden stick, they love roosting bars, dust bath areas and love pecking at melons. Marty on April 23, 2018: Thank you very much for this article!
This begs the query “What can I do to make my chickens happy?”
Here are some other fun ideas. Hang a sunflower in the coop. Scatter insects and bugs, such as worms and crickets, in their coop for them to chase. Sprays of millet hung about the coop are fun for jumping and grabbing, and then chasing if they manage to get a spray loose.
Why Toys for chickens?
Chickens are fun and entertaining pets! Chickens need entertainment so that they won’t cause trouble. Like all animals, they can get bored and develop bad habits if left unoccupied. Not all chickens can be allowed to free range, but even free-range chickens crave fun activities to do.
What is the best thing to feed a chicken?
Great treat—provides protein and it’s fun to watch the chickens catch them. Let mature for yummy seeds and flesh. Hard-cooked and scrambled are a good source of protein and a favorite treat. Feed cooked eggs only because you don’t want your chickens to start eating their own raw eggs.
What do you know about your chicks?
Chickens have full-color vision —no color-blindness here! Who likes to sunbathe? Apparently everyone—humans, cats, dogs, and chickens too! You can’t blame them, and they don’t even need sunscreen. Chickens are real sleeping beauties— they experience rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, which means they dream just like we do.
