There are several methods for improving captive animals ' physical and mental health, known as strategies for enriching the environment. This serves mainly to break the bird's boredom as well as to improve the natural behaviors and nutritional health in a flock. Imagine living a life of the same routine, being confined to a small location, eating the same food, following similar life patterns every day, visualizing a similar view, hearing the same sound, and being occupied every day by the same people. Never change like your things and there's no chance of "variety" in your life. There's no way it will make your life boring and unhappy. Variety adds spice to your life.

The situation for captive animals is close. A similar routine means boredom and boredom means unhappiness and unhappiness leads them to become unhealthy. But techniques for environmental stimulation add spices in their lives, helping them live to the fullest by modifying their behavioral patterns.

Increased Foraging Activities: 

The wild birds spend the majority of their time searching for their own food. Although domesticated and captured animals are restricted to an environment, this may remain deprived as food is given by their own owner. Captive birds just like wild ones require good conditions to survive. We want to be happy and in good health. So, it may be a chicken coop surrounded by an enclosure to provide them with a shelter from the worst of the weather

Physical Habitat: 

A chicken coop is somewhere they can go in and lay their eggs, shelter overnight and defend themselves against predators. The chicken coop is often surrounded by some ground floor to engage them in some physical activity. The field substratum can be a fence, a bale of straw, any surrounding furniture or a playscape of poultry. Continue moving and occasionally changing the coop furniture to add a new look to their lives. The physical environment is important to the chicken's physical well-being. Remove enriched wood with pesticide, as it can be toxic to the chicken.


Mental stimulation: 

Chickens are often tired of coming up against similar conditions. Play some music or bird song for them, rub some fragrant on their furniture or put a shinny pinwheel outside their coop to amuse the flock.  Consider any clicker training to improve their cognitive functioning, as chickens tend to be easily trainable. Continue to try something different, and involve them in activities that make them happy and engaged. As novelties, spices are always included in life.


Keep the chicken coop clean: 

A plan for environmentally friendly enrichment never comes without risk. The surrounding area is populated by viruses and bacteria. Clean the place always with pesticides.
Remove moldy foods as toxins from the mold will destroy your baby.
Strings and cords pose a threat to strangulation. Treat these things with caution.
Always manipulate the diet of flock, since it can cause digestive problems.
When chickens are free, position them under strict supervision, as the chances of predation are high when birds wander carelessly.
