Smarter Than The Average Chicken

Was it my imagination that the straw kept getting deeper in the chicken run?  I’d cut the string on a couple bales so I could layer straw over the snow when necessary, and today I discovered an entire bale had been spread – but not by me!0117151030a

I’d love to know whose idea it was, and whether it was just the scratching instinct or whether they actually had a strategy for warming their feet in deep insulating straw.   I guess it is all for the best if they are happily getting out for the fresh air and exercise.
