I have a couple of hens who are getting picked on by the other hens. I need to come up with some ideas to entertain the flock. I have 15 hens and 4 guineas in an 8'x8' hen house with an 8' x 16' run. I tie a head of cabbage by a string hanging in the run daily but that only entertains them for about thirty minutes. I can't let them free range. Too many cayotes and bobcats.

A hanging mirror might help and maybe a roosting stick or two? Scratch would help food always keeps mine busy

I bought a treat ball from Tractor Supply a month ago for $4 or $5. Its about the size of an orange and you fill it with treats. They roll it around to get the treats out. Showed my girls what to do once and they took it from there. They love it.
