Winter Fun For Chickens

hanging brocolli

I don’t claim to spoil my chickens, but I do like to make sure that they are well taken care of and are happy.  That’s where Winter Fun For Chickens comes in to play!
When cold and snow cover the ground, chickens can’t do what is natural for them like scratching and pecking for bugs and worms.  Also their dust bathing area is frozen or covered with snow.  Besides the obvious of clearing some snow from the ground, there are a few things I do for our ladies that help keep them entertained.
Click HERE to read my post at Community Chickens.  I talk about using ashes for dust baths, hanging broccoli, and more.


  1. Great Post, I did the outdoor perch, and gave them cabbage to peck at. Each day I took them kitchen scrapes. Do you still have snow in your area?

  2. That's so sweet. Off to look at your article. xoxo Su
