Mona Bahraini, an avid chicken enthusiast and owner of a local plant shop, embarked on a mission to keep her chickens entertained and enriched.
Inspired by a friend’s suggestion, Bahraini hung a disco ball in the chicken coop, and the birds’ reaction was priceless.
“I recently learned about chicken enrichment and was exploring different toys for them. A friend from Alaska said she hung a disco ball for her chickens, and she swears they produce more eggs because it makes them happy! Chickens/birds tend to like reflective things.”
Initially perplexed, the chickens quickly grew enamored with the kaleidoscope of colors, serenely gazing at the dazzling display and emitting calm chirping sounds.
“[The birds] quickly grew enamored with all the colors. They would just calmly stare at it and make calm chirping sounds.”
Even the resident goose, Ms. Harriet, was captivated by the disco ball’s mesmerizing allure, reminiscent of a shooting star.
“My goose, Ms. Harriet, was instantly into it before the rest. She stared at it as if she was looking at a shooting star. It was the cutest thing.”

Bahraini’s dedication to her flock extends beyond the disco party, with plans for a picnic table, swing, and even classical music to provide a soothing environment.
“I ordered them a picnic table so they can hop on the bench chairs and eat their daily snacks on it and learn how to share. I have a swing for them, a chain that I hang that has a little basket at [the] bottom where I put tomatoes and lettuce for them to peck at, [and I] play classical music for them at times because music is soothing for everyone and everything.”
These lucky feathered friends truly know how to boogie down and savor the delights of their upgraded coop.
