What food treats do your chickens like? Mine love sweetcorn, pasta, cheese, mashed potato & cucumber. Any other suggestions?

Also....er...do chickens get bored and need toys? blush

Mine love banana and go crazy if we give them some.

We actually give them a few plastic balls to knock around if they are stuck in their run for any reason.

I'll try banana Teebee, now I think about it ours are strangely drawn to the kids spacehoppers, always pecking at them!

Watermelon (but it gives them interesting poos) and tomato causes big fights.

Do they kick the balls, teebee?? grin

Don't think my chickens get bored <<<tries to imagine a bored expression on a chicken face>>>
They're always in to something or other.

Chickens may well be good at football......I think we might have a budding Peckham grin

Mine just had some cherries, (found at back of fridge), or I would have had them! They went mad for them, mugging each other for the last cherry grin
