Hanging up fruit or veg from the roof of the run (I tried a large chunk of cucumber today - they loved it :D )

A dog's treat ball filled with lettuce/cabbage etc

A sweetcorn thingy (name escapes me :oops: )

Branches for perching (I've put in an old shoe rack - they use it a lot)


I'm sure there's more ...

A couple a weeks a go I brought a treat ball that is ment for rabbits which I fill with corn which my chooks love to play with, admittedly it took them a couple of attempts to realiase that if they knock the ball corn comes out. Now when I let them free range they always run to it and give it a nudge to see what happens
