Sharing our adventures in keeping backyard chickens, bees and gardening from a quaint New England town on Cape Cod

Last week, I put my usual order in at Treats for Chickens. I decided it would be fun to purchase a chicken toy for the girls. I figured that this might help beat the winter boredom that flocks sometimes can experience. There is not much to do when a thick layer of snow covers the ground. Bored birds can begin to become destructive. This includes pecking and eating their eggs and pecking at each other, leading to feather loss and bleeding wounds. The chickens were introduced to the chicken toy, filled with organic wheat seeds, for the first time today. Although they're still a little apprehensive, I think in no time this will be something that the girls will love.
