Our chickens get bored so we decided to get a chicken toy. It was pretty expensive so we were iffy about the idea of buying the toy. We decided to buy it only because it was 20% off, even with the discount it still was pretty expensive. You are supposed to put scratch grains in the chicken toy so once they peck at the toy scratch spills out. The only problem with the toy is that our chickens are scared of balls. The pro with the toy is that it helps our chickens overcome the fear of anything circular. Pebbles seems to really enjoy playing with the chicken toy the most. I highly recommend this toy.
